Hmmm... I wonder how this happened?



"Gasoline is the bloodline that keeps America moving. Our personal vehicles alone guzzle 115 billion gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel each year, according to the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA). Add commercial vehicles, recreational vehicles and other machines that run on gasoline and the number is even more astronomical. In 2001, the average fuel economy of cars and light trucks hit their lowest points since 1980, which only compounds the problem of higher gas prices. "
