The U.S. "demanded that buyers of Iranian oil stop purchases by May 1 or face sanctions." These sanctions are an effort to push Iran to renegotiate the terms of the 2015  nuclear deal aiming to limit production of nuclear materials that could be used as weapons.  The U.S. also has other demands, including "providing more civil liberties to its citizens and refraining from funding Shiite militias in the region, testing ballistic missiles and keeping intact nuclear infrastructure that could theoretically be used someday to develop weapons."

CAR also "estimates that consumers will see the price of all new vehicles rise by $455 to $6,875 depending on the level of tariff or quota, where the vehicle was assembled, and whether the policy provides exemptions for automotive trade with Canada and Mexico."
