There are new studies that might not be very well taken by anyone, which surely give us an idea how to reduce the commercial fuel consumption.
The answer of the National Research Council has been found- reducing is available through higher gas taxes. By applying higher taxes the government will stimulate the search for alternative sources and economic vehicles.
The researchers give Europe as an example. The Europe fuel market is eminent for its higher fuel prices. This was exactly the reason why many manufacturers have been investing into new engines that will reduce the fuel consumption by at least five percent.
The report also points out that the effect of the higher gas taxes will make the shipping costs higher.
This eventually will make the customers seek another way for transporting such as rail transportation.
The switch from ship to rail will reduce also the mileage by the commercial vehicles. Overall, this will be the reason for less fuel consumption.
Of course, for now this is just a research, but the committee is trying to encourage the customers to find low-cost methods for reducing the fuel usage and the emissions. There is also an advice to the customer for implementing higher fuel efficiency standard that is strongly recommended.
