The PEW Environmental Group has just launched an online petition dubbed Increase My MPG that asks President Obama and the United States government to increase the standard fuel efficiency of vehicles to 60 mpg (miles per gallon) by 2025. If the President were to increase the fuel efficiency of regular vehicles, it would be a huge step towards cutting down on pollution, and helping put dollars back into the pockets of American drivers.

However, this effort could be an uphill battle, as the cars on the road today – even eco friendly hybrids – have a long way to go to meet those standards. For instance, the Toyota Prius, considered one of the most fuel efficient cars on the road, gets on average 51 mpg in the city; the 2012 Ford Focus gets 28 mpg in the city.

Watch the promotional video for the proposed fuel efficiency action plan released by the PEW Environmental Group below:
