Bloomberg News

Honda is the only automaker selling compressed natural-gas-powered cars to U.S. drivers and will be able to use the credits to meet the fuel-economy standards.

Crazy-quilt regulation.

Get government out of our private business.

Credits and manipulation are tools of the social engineers.

Oops.
