So.. if we remove the laws putting a lower limit on car millage, the car
companies will magically start making more efficent cars?

Maybe you mean if the government removes it's safety laws so the car
companies can make them out of tin foil so they will be lighter and more
efficent?  Who cares if it kills people.

Or maybe get rid of OSHA.  It would be much cheaper to build a car if you
don't have to buy expensive things like hard-hats.  They would then of
couse spend the profits on making cars get better MPG, not making their
stockholders richer.

Just what laws are stopping car makers from building more efficent,
cleaner engines?
