The Latest: California air regulators keep fuel standards

The Latest on California's car-emission standards (all times local):

2:18 p.m.

California air regulators have voted to keep the state's tougher car-emissions standards through 2025 and further expand the market for zero-emission vehicles in the years ahead.

The state's Air Resources Board voted unanimously on Friday at a meeting in Riverside to continue with the standards for 2022 to 2025.

While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under the Obama administration also recently came out in support of these standards, President Donald Trump recently said he wants to re-examine the rules governing gas mileage.

Standards require new cars and trucks to average 36 miles per gallon in real-world driving conditions by 2025.

The agency says the board also voted to pursue policies to support more than 4 million zero-emission vehicles in California by 2030.
