Repeal The Fuel Economy Rules

This is source I found from another site, main source you can find in last paragraph

The federal government is again considering whether to defer enforcement of its rules mandating that new cars built in the United States have improved fuel efficiency by next year. The current standard imposed on Detroit is 26 miles per gallon average fleet efficiency, up from 18 m.p.g. in 1978 when the corporate average fuel economy rules went into effect.

The rules, if Washington chooses to enforce them, will require automakers to get an average efficiency of 27.5 m.p.g. out of their 1987 car production. The rules came in the wake of gasoline shortages caused at least in part by government interference in pricing. The government no longer fools around with petroleum prices, there is a glut of oil on the market and gas pump prices have fallen accordingly. That means public demand for big gas guzzlers has increased, and the Detroit automakers have a problem: To increase production of larger cars they either can simultaneously increase production of smaller cars so that their fleet average meets federal standards, or they can talk Washington into lowering the standards. Some companies have chosen to try the latter.
