Gas prices...gas prices, moan, complain...woe are we.
This is a good time to ask yourself whether you really need a full-size, truck-based SUV.
Well, do you? Do you need to tow more than three tons? Do you need a maximum payload of over 1,500 pounds? If you answered no to these questions, they why are you even thinking of wasting this truck's capabilities on commuting or people-hauling? There are less costly and more efficient vehicles out there for those jobs, including crossovers, minivans, and even the 2009 Ford Flex (we don't know what to call that vehicle yet).
