New Fuel-Economy Data Out

The new EPA testing for fuel effiency is out, you can see the data at the Department of Energy's website.

The new numbers more accurately reflect real-world driving, meaning the window-sticker ratings shoppers use to compare cars drops 1 m.p.g. to 2 m.p.g. for most gasoline-powered models.

The change for hybrids is more drastic, about a 15% to 20% decrease. The Toyota Prius' fuel economy dropped from 60 m.p.g. to 48 m.p.g. for city driving.
