The Future Of Transportation - Trucks

Safeway has rolled out a much-modified tractor that reportedly gets 75% better mileage than its fleet of conventional trucks. Not to be outdone, Wal-Mart has debuted a tractor unit that looks like it was hijacked from the set of the latest Transformers movie:
Optimus Prime, with the Wal-Mart livery removed. Should have left it on, we'd have never recognized him.

Sensing an opportunity, the President has jumped in and joined the affray announcing that he will order the EPA to demand that heavy trucks double their mileage and be quick about it. After all, anything that a room full of engineers can do in 3 years can certainly be duplicated by imperial decree in 6 months.
