EPA proposes new limits on auto emissions, an attempt to ‘prop up’ electric vehicle tech: Mandy Gunasekara
Former EPA Chief of Staff Mandy Gunasekara says this EPA proposal would be a ‘de facto ban’ on internal combustion engines and says they do not have the authority to ban certain technology.
As the Biden administration pushes electric vehicles, only about four in 10 Americans say they would at least be somewhat likely to go electric for their next cars, according to a new survey.
The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago showed only 8% of U.S. adults say they or someone in their household owns or leases an electric vehicle, and the same percentage said their household has a plug-in hybrid vehicle.
Just 19% of that group said it is "very" or "extremely" likely that they would purchase an electric vehicle the next time they buy a car.
Nearly half, or 47%, said it was not likely they would go electric, with 22% saying it was somewhat likely.
