Should Mileage Standards Be Raised?

The American government is going to raise the Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency (CAFE) standard to an average 35.5 miles per gallon by 2012. (yesterday's report was a bit off). But many question whether this is the right way to get better mileage; the last time it was set, the auto industry literally drove a truck through the regulations. And, when gas was cheap, people wanted big cars. Who in the comments from our post do you agree with?
