WASHINGTON -- Car shoppers will receive more details on window stickers about fuel efficiency, emissions, energy costs and energy consumption under a new government proposal for 2012 model year vehicles.
The Transportation Department and Environmental Protection Agency are announcing the proposed stickers Monday. Options include letter grades of A+ to D for the vehicle's overall fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions or keeping the current label's approach on miles per gallon and annual fuel costs with an updated design.
