At least 21,000 jobs will be created by 2030 in Ohio as a direct result of vehicle fuel economy standards proposed by the Obama administration, according to a new study released by the BlueGreen Alliance.

Findings in the report, Gearing Up: Smart Standards Create Good Jobs Building Cleaner Cars, reveal 570,000 jobs would be created nationally from fuel savings and developing clean car technology. This proposal for light-duty vehicles built between 2017- 2025 means fuel economy will reach an all-time high 54.5 miles per gallon (mpg) and low for emissions of 163 grams of carbon dioxide per mile (g/mi).
