( – The Biden administration’s Environment Protection Agency (EPA) is set to finalize the tailpipe emissions standards that all gas-powered vehicles will be required to follow. The new standards have been dubbed by some energy industry grounds as the “de facto electric vehicle mandate.”

EPA’s proposal from recent weeks, which was submitted to the White House Office of Management and Budget for final review, was set to guarantee that by 2032 new car sales would be 67 percent electric. 

The Washington Post and the New York Times noted over the weekend that the White House was set on its goal while at the same time intending to lose some of the targets they had set earlier on. 

In a statement, the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers noted that it has been clear since 2020 that the President was intending to use his agencies to completely eliminate the sale of new gas cars. It added that changing the speed of implementation did not mean they were moving away from the end goal which is to ban all new gas-powered cars. It further pointed out that consumers in the end are going to end up facing the same problem of having heavily restricted access or in some cases no access. This is a reference to whether or not the EPA approves California’s ban. 

It further added that a slower transition was not going to assist in protecting the country’s energy security. 

EPA spokesperson Timothy Carroll declined to make any remarks regarding the report.
