The question is: did Detroit build large fuelish cars and then hypnotize us into buying them or did they build what we wanted? I really can't tell, maybe some of both.

The market is always right. The cost differential to insure a compact automobile versus a large SUV is greater than the savings in fuel costs.

Yep. I have a 2005 Ford F150 and a 2003 Buick LeSabre. I have the same full coverage on both with the same Insurance Co. My Truck insurance is about 10% a year cheaper than the Buick. The insurance companies figure in an accident between a truck and a car, the car and the people in it will suffer the most damage and injuries.

Maybe in Florida. But there is no way I can believe this statement without seeing the numbers.
