Nissan Asks U.S. for Relief on Fuel-Economy Rules

This is following up on an earlier story. Nissan has asked for some concessions on observing the "domestic/foreign" rule of the CAFE standards with Big 3 opposing such a move. One thing about foreign manufacturers is that they are now actuallly no longer foreign. Nissan, Toyota and Honda all produce vehicles in the US in large numbers and employ thousands of people. Several southern states have lured Japanese manufacturers with incentives to set up their shop in the South. Now, of course, Nissan can play the politics of fuel economy almost as well as the Big 3!
