my point is, we in the US, want the cheapest gas and are wasteful at the same time. We don't need a 13 mph truck to drive our kids to school, go shopping, be a socker mom. When our kids are in high school, they drive themself to school in cars nicer than the teacher's. When these wasteful pratices end, then gas is too expensive, got it, nothing personal here, just making a point.
Why in the world can't we put our kids on a school bus that goes past our house each day? Instead, we have to drive them, crazy.
BTW, I need a truck to trailer my backhoe around. Don't use a truck as a car to drive places, unless I need to buy items that won't fit in a car. Trucks are trucks and should be used as such.
