Infographic: Labor Day Gas Prices and Fuel Efficiency

Labor Day marks one of the biggest travel holidays of the year, with Americans hitting the road to visit friends and family, go to the beach, or celebrate the end of summer.

New fuel efficiency standards--which require cars and light trucks to get 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025--would save drivers $123.3 million in fuel costs over the Labor Day weekend.

Higher mpg will not only save consumers money at the pump, but the new rule also will reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil, decrease pollution, and promote investment in new clean transportation technologies.
