Feds have finger on the pulse

Holy cow, in 2011 we will have SUV'S, Minivans and pickup trucks that get 2 more miles to the gallon. As I fill up my tank I breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the great braintrust looking out for us average, everyday people while the oil company execs are too busy counting their record profits to take notice. This must be that trickle down crap that we keep hearing about. It seem to me that if we would have been serious about our oil consumption we would have taken steps to solve this problem long ago, instead our great brain trust found creative ways to market and sell vehicles that were outside of previous miles per gallon standards. Oh well, gotta go. Going to take out a second mortgage to fill up the tank.
