    WTF I know. I go to Europe on occasion, and when I do the choices for cars are amazing and small. I like that.

    Let us not forget that the US government hasn't had a real energy policy since the late 70's. Also between the turmoil in the Middle East and the fact that billions of Chinese and Indians are moving from bicycles and mopeds to cars there is only so much an energy policy in this country can effect prices.

    This should not be a surprise to most Americans. With, in essence, no real energy policy coming from our government under this administration, the consumer is being hurt. Essentially the short sighted current policy of monetarizing the debt by printing money and thus inducing inflation, while deflating the value of the dollar, will only drive up energy prices and squeeze the middle class. These hard working Americans will be forced into choosing transportation options they do not truly want, which by the way, is the acknowleged strategy of this administration. I doubt this is a long term trend and once an effective energy policy is in place Americans will return to larger cars, SUVs and trucks.
