Cars and trucks will soon be getting 10 mpg better mileage largely due to new technology coming online such as direct fuel injection and computer controlled transmissions. There will be more hybrids and lighter weight vehicles in more compact versions, costing an average of $1300 more. They claim it will only take three years to recoup the cost in gas savings. Think there will be a tax credit or incentive here?
Let’s see – I’m glad to see the changes at last, but how will my daughter and her family of 5 big kids ever be able to go anywhere in one vehicle? Oh, they are going to take away cargo space for more seating! So I guess they will have to get a trailer for everybody’s stuff if they can still afford to go on a vacation. I guess around town they will save gas, but when they travel, it will be much more. Will it even out? Hope so!
