Trump EPA to scrap fuel mileage regulations.

This has the potential to be a true game-changer in our lives, my friends.

The Trump administration is poised to abandon America's pioneering fuel economy targets for cars and SUVs, a move that would undermine one of the world's most aggressive programs to confront climate change and invite another major confrontation with California.

The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to announce in the coming days that it will scrap mileage targets the Obama administration drafted in tandem with California that aim to boost average fuel economy for passenger cars and SUVs to 55 miles per gallon by 2025, according to people familiar with the plans.

The agency plans to replace those targets with a weaker standard that will be unveiled soon, according to the people, who did not want to be identified discussing the plan before it was announced.

EPA spokeswoman Liz Bowman said a draft determination was undergoing interagency review and a final decision would be made by Sunday.

This is exactly the kind of thing that Trump was elected to do. Who else but The Donald could tell the Greenies to stick it like this?

I fricking love Donald Trump. This is awesome!

Right? We may very well find that the golden age of Detroit Iron has yet to dawn.

Imagine a 2021 Buick Riviera: four hundred and twenty five unnaturally-aspirated cubic inches of turbocharged, tire roasting horsepower from a New Nailhead, it runs pump gas, and you change the oil once a year. Available with a STICK, and there's a station wagon version.

Hell yes. Sign me the hell up.
