WASHINGTON — U.S. automakers are taking their fuel economy case to Middle America, warning that too dramatic an increase in federal efficiency standards would cost billions and put jobs at risk if they were forced to stop making their biggest, most profitable models.

General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler LLC will hold rallies in downtown Chicago and St. Louis, beginning Thursday in the Windy City.

Here’s the news release from the automakers. The rallies support H.R. 2927, the bipartisan Hill-Terry bill, that proposes achievable fuel efficiency standards. The NAM’s materials on CAFE are available here.
