In Denver we're at about $1.65 for regular.
Kass, I totally agree with you, and Mary Anne there are people who actually USE their trucks and SUVs and for those people (like you) more power to them! The people who I hate are like this guy I used to work with. He wanted a status symbol, bought the biggest Suburban on the market. He never went into the mountains, he and his wife had 2 kids so not a big family to drive around. He had no real reason for a vehicle that big - he never hauled anything, didn't go 4-wheeling, didn't even do home improvements stuff where he would occassionally use the room to haul supplies.
Sunni Jean, in addition to the government being so slow on requiring upgrades like that (mostly because of the auto industry lobby), the other problem I see is that the few truly efficient and hybrid cars are so darn expensive! I know I can't afford one, so I end up sticking with my 1990 27MPG car (which is still better than hubby's 20MPG car - a Volvo. Sad thing is that when we bought it one of the considerations was that we had head Volvos were really good on mileage.
) With the hybrid cars especially being so expensive, they won't sell big numbers which the manufacturers will manipulate into "Obviously the public isn't that concerned with it." Couldn't be further from the truth, but the Average Joe can't afford a $50,000 car.
Boy, this soapbox is getting full.....
