Efficient Cars = More Jobs for Ohioans

“Ohio is among seven states that would gain the most if car manufacturers would improve fuel economy, according to a study released Wednesday by the Union of Concerned Scientists, a national nonprofit organization in Massachusetts.”

If the car industry had a fuel economy standard of 35 mpg by 2018, Ohio would gain 10,500 new jobs. These jobs are not only from the auto manufacturing sector, but many would be the result of consumers saving money on gas and spending it on retail, restaurants, and new homes. More fuel efficient cars may cost more, allowing the automakers to invest their revenue in new technology. As with some hybrids today, the gas savings would offset the higher price of the vehicle.
