Revision reported near on fuel-efficiency labels


WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency are to announce a decision on new fuel-efficiency labels Wednesday, four people familiar with the decision told the Detroit Free Press.

The labels — stickers required in the windows of new cars to provide fuel-economy information — have been slated for an overhaul, but a debate has surrounded what kind of information to include and whether the labels should include an efficiency “grade.”

For the first time, information on emissions will be included, along with a design aimed at clearer comparisons of cars in the same size or function class.
