Average Fuel Economy Hits 24 MPG For First Time Ever
Report shows new cars' fuel efficiency is rising steadily thanks to government regulations and high gas prices.
"All of this means that one surprising benefit to the slow economy is that the fuel efficiency of cars on the road will spike more quickly in the coming years as lower-mpg vehicles replace older models."
Don't you mean higher-mpg models?
Well considering people cannot really afford vehicles right now (despite the incresases in sales the average age of cars keeps climbing somehow) the higher cost of the cars will do what for people? And the $3,000 extra cost wont add up to any savings at the pump unless gas is roughly $8 a gallon.
Where do these tools get their numbers from and who taught them how to do math?
