    "Obesity Costs America $4 Billion Per Year At The Pump"

    Thank you Mr Richard Read for bring this subject up that I have been saying needs more attention. I wish more articles would be written on this subject by other forums and magazines.
    American's in general are overweight. As you well know there are many reasons as to why this is so.
    The automobile industry is being forced to make cars safer which does equal to more weight/bigger vehicles. The needs and the wants of making a vehicle more like an extension of our home carries some weight, no pun intended.
    So there is plenty of blame, if one wants to call it that, to go around.
    A new meaning for the 'Battle of the Bulge' is facing us:-)
