There is a wide mis-conception these days i.e. reduced fuel consumption, fuel efficiency and high mileage cars come at a cost. The cost may be due to the more expensive and energy efficient materials, increased manufacturing complexity, attributes of power and size. The most appropriate measure of cost for the purpose of evaluating the benefits of the fuel economy regulations is the long run increase in the retail prices. Not to forget that most of the methods for estimating manufacturing costs begin by identifying specific changes in the vehicle components and items for bringing forward some of the highest mpg cars. Reducing the car expenditures is indeed a must in these times of extreme economic meltdown.
