It's amazing how people base their decision on whether to get a gas-guzzler they'll have for atleast 3 years based on a few months of stable gas prices. If gas prices on the high end could break your bank, you probably shouldn't consider a low mpg vehicle.

US consumers are still buying nearly 4 million fewer new cars a year than they did in 2007. You also need to factor in how much profit they're making on these cars. If they have to give big discounts to move product than it's not good for the bottom line.
