It would halt requirements that automakers build cleaner, more fuel-efficient cars including hybrids and electric vehicles." The plan "would freeze fuel efficiency standards at 2020 levels through 2026, and require dramatically fewer electric vehicles." According to the plan, "U.S. fuel consumption would increase by about half a million barrels per day (2-3 percent of total daily consumption, according to the Energy Information Administration) and would impact the global climate by 3/1000th of one degree Celsius by 2100, also when compared to the standards set forth in 2012." 19 states that have adopted California's strict emissions standards plan to sue to stop the plan.

"Planning areas in the Pacific Ocean and the eastern Gulf of Mexico are included in the new plan, as well as more than 100 million acres in the Arctic and along much of the Eastern Seaboard. Former President Obama placed the latter two regions under a drilling moratorium in the last weeks of his presidency." This plan is the result of an Executive Order signed by President Trump in April, 2017 directing "Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to review a five-year plan in which President Obama banned drilling in parts of the Pacific, Arctic, and Atlantic Oceans." The Department of the Interior also has proposed (on December 28, 2017) to eliminate a rule created after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, that "tightened controls on blowout preventers, devices that are intended to stop explosions in undersea oil and gas well, and called for rig operators to have third parties certify that the safety devices worked under extreme conditions. "  A failed blowout preventer was the cause of the Deepwater Horizion oil spill.
