U.S. considers 56.2 mpg vehicle fuel standard -WSJ


NEW YORK, June 26 (Reuters) - The Obama administration is considering requiring all new cars and trucks sold in the United States to get an average of 56.2 miles per gallon by 2025, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

U.S. officials presented the possible new standard in a proposal to representatives of Detroit auto makers, the Journal reported in its online edition.

The newspaper said the proposal isn't final and could be adjusted over the next several weeks before it is presented to White House budget officials. (Reporting by Helen Chernikoff; Editing by Leslie Adler)
