Hypocrites, or simply confused?March 14, 2009
It should be no surprise that President Obama is pushing for higher fuel economy standards. I assume if you support Obama then you support government mandated higher fuel standards.
I believe in voluntary adoption of higher fuel economy standards. That is why I have driven a Honda Civic for 20 years. Rising oil prices will insure that others will also opt for better mileage vehicles at time goes on. And if you are worried about CO2, higher fuel economy standards won’t make any difference. Because every drop of oil that you don’t burn helps keep the price low enough for somebody in India or China to burn it.
So, are the owners of these vehicles hypocrites or just confused?
