Did it ever occur to you that some people own SUV's because they NEED them? I own an SUV, and I rely on it to make get my job done so that I can feed my family. And it certainly does get less mpg's than a geo metro, but I couldn't get my job done in a squirt-mobile. Not to mention New England winters, and the necessity of 4wd vehicles here for the safety's sake. Yes, I believe I have just as much right as anyone else to complain about the gas prices... maybe even more. So I invite you, take a ride up to Maine around February in your gas-saving hybrid corolla... and slide out of control off of the highway into a tree...
LOL! Squirt-mobile! Good one. Made me think of the Smart car that followed me into a parking lot today, man that's gotta be a joke! I drive a Camry, so it's not like I'm pushing big cars, but no way would I be in one of those things on the LIE or SS pkwy.

was a lie in the 70's and its a lie now! There's plenty of oil!
