If you’re sick of high gas prices, too bad—they’re not going down, according to outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.
“Gas prices aren't going down,” he said in his final press conference, “they are not going to go down.”
During his four-plus years at DOT, the administration raised the mileage goal to 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, a huge increase that will likely lead to hybrids flooding the car market.
"The kinds of vehicles people drive I think will change dramatically," said LaHood. "I believe that in the year 2025 when the gas standard goes to 54.5, I think just about every family in America will have some form of a hybrid."
