Isn't it interesting?
The library got it's new copy of Consumer Reports today.....the 2011 new car edition. In looking through it I realized that the car industry seems to be going backward when it comes to gas mileage. The majority of the vehicles featured, and there were lots of them, don't get as good gas mileage as my 20-yr. old Buick. That includes the teeny-weeny sub-compact models. There were just a handful that are rated at 30mpg or better. This is progress?? Who are they trying to kid?? We won't even go into prices of the new "efficient" cars.
