Average fuel economy of passenger cars in the US in 2010 was 33.7 mpg, with domestic vehicles at 32.9 mpg, and 35.1 for imported cars, according to the Research and Innovative Technology Administration of the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.
To add to elifitz’s answer, which discusses new cars that are being manufactured, the overall gas mileage for passenger cars on the road in 2008 was 22.6 mpg. For other vehicles like trucks, it was 18.1.
Though those numbers are pretty low, they have been steadily rising as gas-guzzlers die out and are replaced with new cars.
Numbers for 2009 and 2010 are not yet available for the overall average.
