Gas prices keep going up.
Looks like they may top $3/gallon by this weekend.
If that means that less over-sized SUVs with piss-poor gas mileage will be sold, I am ALL FOR IT.
If that means the people driving these gas-guzzling death traps are going to stay home more often, I hope gas prices rise to $5/gallon. Whatever price it takes for them not to be able to afford to drive them.
In Britain, the average vehicle gets 26 MPG and is much smaller than most cars driven by americans. Large SUVs are frowned upon.
In the US, the average vehicle gets 17 MPG. You see people driving things like Lincoln Navigators – dangerous to their own drivers and more importantly, to others on the road.
So if $5 gas will keep them off the road, I will gladly accept it.
