Browsing over the CAFE 2008 doc. and came over the estimated MPG improvement rates (min, max, mean) for each technology (two-mode hybrid, low friction lubricant, etc.) as it applies to the vehicle type (passenger car, truck) on page 359.

Looked at the estimated cost to meet CAFE standards to MY 2017', along with estimated sales volumes till MY 2017. Interestingly, Nissan is hit the hardest in meeting new CAFE standards.

They project retail gasoline prices on the high side hitting $3/gallon in 11'. We all know that number is very conservative.

Plenty of information for data seekers like myself.
