Environment New York, a statewide citizen-based advocacy group, said Monday a new report  — Gobbling Less Gas for Thanksgiving: How Clean Car Standards Will Cut Oil Use and Save Americans Money — shows more fuel efficient cars would cut oil use and save New Yorkers roughly $14.8 million at the gas pump this Thanksgiving alone.

The report was released just days after the Obama administration’s announcement of proposed new fuel efficiency and global warming pollution standards for cars and light trucks sold from 2017 through 2025.
