Save money, and the planet
Chart above from the Pew Center on Global Climate Change
Shows comparitive average fleet mileage by year.
At $3.40 per gallon, assuming you drive 12,000 miles a year at the US average of 23 miles per gallon, you're spending roughly $1,800 per year on gasoline.
If you would like to save $900 per year (and cut your transportation greenhouse gases in half) - you just need a car that achieves what all cars in Japan do, on average.
How hard can that be? What would you do with $900 more every year?
You could settle for 18.4 cents a gallon ($96 dollars a year). But you wouldn't do that, would you?
Even the Chinese are kicking our ass. Wonder what it costs America to be at the bottom of this list?
