EPA says its mpg test holds up for hybrids
Tire Business

Auto industry gets serious about fuel economy
Rubber News
The last time the auto industry took on fuel economy, it was because an oil embargo prompted lines at gasoline stations, higher prices and the first Corporate Average Fuel Economy requirements in the U.S. That was in the 1970s.

New online markets for small businesses may offer some workers greater choices
Kaiser Health News
Workers at small companies rarely get a choice of health plans. That could change for some of them when online health insurance marketplaces for businesses open this fall. The health care overhaul requires every state and the District of Columbia to establish a Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP exchange, to enable businesses with 50 or fewer workers to offer health insurance to their employees.

Overcoming a scrap tire environmental challenge
The Prince Albert Daily Herald
