    How should policy regulate air pollution from vehicles? Theoretically, optimal policy would apply a Pigouvian tax on emissions. In part because such a tax is technologically infeasible, most countries rely heavily on exhaust standards. These standards regulate air pollutants like nitrogen oxides and have very different properties than fuel economy regulations.
