The Seattle Times -- 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 new fuel-economy standards released Tuesday by the Obama administration.

By Angela Greiling Keane

Bloomberg News

Honda, which last year complained that a proposed fuel-economy rule was unfair to non-U.S. automakers, got a boost when the final version added extra credits for sellers of natural-gas-powered vehicles.

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.
