On Monday, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said the agency will revise the rules, Reuters reported, citing EPA spokesperson Liz Bowman.

"The Obama Administration's determination was wrong", EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said in a statement Monday.

"Fuel efficiency sells vehicles".

It's the latest example of the Trump administration gutting environmental and climate rules - from the Environmental Protection Agency proposing to undo the Clean Power Plan to the Interior Department allowing new coal leases on public lands.

But some automakers have recently said that they aren't in favor of rolling back the standards that are in place.

Consumers Union, the advocacy division of publication Consumer Reports, said that the EPA move would "raise costs for consumers", who had been saving at the pump thanks to improved vehicle fuel economy.

"To ensure ongoing fuel economy improvement, the wisest course of action is to keep new vehicles affordable so more consumers can replace an older auto with a new vehicle that uses much less fuel - and offers more safety features", she said.

Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Oregon, denounced the move as a "shameless assault" on public health, the climate and USA consumers.

"We support increasing clean vehicle standards through 2025 and are not asking for a rollback", Bill Ford, executive chairman of Ford Motor Company, and Jim Hackett, President and CEO of the automaker, wrote in an open letter late last month.

Separately, Honda vice president Robert Bienenfeld told The New York Times that a full roll-back was more than the company bargained for. The standards had been years in the making, requiring research and discussions between policymakers and auto industry representatives. The EPA is also targeting the California waiver.

California has been able to impose stricter standards for vehicle emissions of certain pollutants than federal requirements thanks to a Clean Air Act waiver granted previously by EPA. But Pruitt's EPA wants to strike down that exemption so there is just one federally mandated efficiency standard nationwide. "We support the administration for pursuing a data-driven effort and a single national program as it works to finalize future standards". That, though, doesn't appear to be on the cards according to Administrator Pruitt's somewhat antagonistic tone in today's statement.

Salah Strikes Again To Move Liverpool Into Second Spot
The league's leading scorer kept his cool to convert Andrew Robertson's cross on 84 minutes for his 29th goal of the season. Andy Robertson absolutely loved Mohamed Salah's late victor for Liverpool at Crystal Palace.

The clash underscores some of the contradictions of Pruitt's talk of "cooperative federalism", a phrase he uses to justify weakening federal standards to shift environmental regulation to the states. "EPA will set a national standard for greenhouse gas emissions that allows auto manufacturers to make cars that people both want and can afford - while still expanding environmental and safety benefits of newer cars".

Given the background, Dan Becker, director of the Safe Climate Campaign, said, "The fact that Ford just denied that it is lobbying the Trump administration to roll back the clean auto rules the company agreed to and promised to support, shows that it needs to wake up and smell its pollution".

In a statement, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said the state was prepared to take the White House to court.

"This evaluation would determine whether the standards remain appropriate or should be made more, or less stringent", the EPA says. "We stand ready to take legal action to block the Trump administration's reckless and illegal efforts to reverse these critical standards and the gains we've made in ensuring cars are more fuel-efficient and less polluting".

During Barack Obama's presidency, the US government agreed to strict rules that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about one-third for new cars sold from 2022 to 2025.

The Alliance contends that complying with the Obama-era emissions standards would cost $200 billion, eliminate jobs, and raise vehicle prices.

The Alliance president added that only some hybrid, plug-in electric, and fuel-cell vehicles, which amount to only 3.5 percent of America's new passenger vehicles can comply with the rigorous Obama-era emissions standard.
