Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, has a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

While we are caught somewhere in the middle of this, the fact remains that gas prices are up and its not our fault.

We need to insulate ourselves from the volatility of the world oil market by converting to domestic natural gas as our primary fuel and aggressively moving away from our foreign crude oil addiction. Screw BIG OIL, their Republican defenders and Abdul.
