A lot can change in 10 years - and here are some trends experts at USA Today say we can look forward to in the year 2023.

  • First: Car fuel economy will continue to improve and should average at least 36 miles per gallon. Today the average for North American cars is about 26 miles per gallon.

  • Also: Look for movie theaters to become plusher. After a decade of losing moviegoers to fancy home movie systems, experts say theaters will offer bigger seats with more legroom in an effort to lure people out of their homes.

  • On the health front: By the year 2023, cancer and heart disease will no longer be the #1 killers in North America! As medical technology improves, experts say more people will survive those conditions, leaving Alzheimer’s disease as the nation’s biggest health problem.
