The "Cash for Clunkers" campaign did much to help the air pollution situation as well. A repeat of this program in about 10 years will also help.

Thanks for the info, and it is true that getting a lot of clunkers off the road was a big help.

All I can do is drive as little as possible, consolidating errands and work driving. AND make sure I have a fresh inhaler when I'm forced to go to the *city*. My driving to Scranton would be like a lovely Sunday drive through the country for most of you, but I start wheezing as soon as I get anywhere near the city limits.

Whenever you read about inprovements in the car industry, they project improvements a decade from now. A major factor in this is the outsourcing of car parts. We are at the mercy of Japan and our agreements with them.

In California we have made amazing progress, though still need to do more. One of the biggest problems is the "bowl" effect the Valley makes. When there is an inversion layer over the Valley, it holds in all the pollution. Alan is right; the "Cash for Clunkers" did much to help, but we should do it again sooner than 10 years down the road. Thanks for the article, Cher.

It must be hard for the EPA, as the car industry has been lying about how many miles you can go on a tank of gas. Some people were just on the news last week and have kept close records (have to for business purposes), and they are not getting anywhere near what is advertised. Their vehicle had a tech check up on everything down to tire pressure.
Thanks for the info. Cher.
