Big car versus little car

Its funny how something as simple as gasoline can change the way people think about transportation. For a while there, big SUV's were the popular vehicle to drive, and they kept getting bigger. Unfortunately they paid no consideration to how much fuel they used which eventually came back to bite us. Now; since the price of fuel has gone through the roof people are being forced to sell their big SUV's and buy smaller more economically efficent vehicles. Because of new demand for smaller fuel efficent vehicles, manufacturers have hit the ground running. Ford just released plans to bring over 8 european models to the US to sell domestically. Moves they are making because of massive 2nd quarter losses that were released a few days ago. I guess we need to get used to small cars again, huh!!
