[quote:Serendipity 24942595:MV8yMDEzMDEzXzMzODI4NDc1X0UzRTZERThD] [quote:Anonymous Coward 16026864:MV8yMDEzMDEzXzMzODI2NjIzXzk0QTkyQ0Ex] [quote:Tanarus:MV8yMDEzMDEzXzMzODI2MzU0XzQzNDdFRDJF] If Obama is re elected, We'll be looking at 6-7 Dollars a gallon. He wants to bring it on par with what the Europeans are paying per gallon. [/quote] That probably wouldn't be as bad as it sounds *IF* and I can't emphasise this enough, *if* you guys where allowed access to more efficient engines.. my Ford gets 65 US MPG in the real world, I drive 90 miles to work. I was comparing the small Ford Commercials vans (trucks) and the same vehicle (bodyshape wise) gets 22 US MPG in America compared to 37 US MPG here, quite a disparity, plus the same vehicle is $2000 cheaper here. So I can not help but come to the conclusion that raising your fuel prices to the level of European ones without at least giving you access to more efficient engines has 2 purposes, screw you guys over at home, and screw you guys over at work. And even *if* they do offer you access to more efficient engines it still screws over every existing vehicle owner in the country both at home and at work.. In the real world the only word I can attach to this madness of Obama does plan to go that route is it'll make America "Unworkable" [/quote] My ex-husband manages a fleet of work trucks. The 8 cylinder models get MUCH better gas mileage than the rest of the fleet. When you make trucks smaller you have to have more of them to do the same work....which creates more money for government through licenses and insurance, etc. etc. You cannot compare Britain to the US...one of our states is the size of your entire country.....we are 10,000 times bigger than you in land mass....little lorries don't cut it here.
