Trump delays increase in fuel economy penalties at auto industry request

WASHINGTON, Jan 12 (Reuters) - The Trump administration agreed on Tuesday to an auto industry request to delay the start of dramatically higher penalties for companies that fail to meet fuel efficiency requirements, a move that could save the industry hundreds of millions of dollars or more. The decision -- announced eight days before President-elect Joe Biden takes office -- follows a U.S. appeals court in August that overturned the Trump administration’s 2019 decision to suspend a regulation that more than doubled penalties for automakers failing to meet fuel efficiency requirements.
