“Automakers will never improve gas mileage on their own. Their business is selling cars, not addressing a national energy policy.”


I think that automakers WILL improve gas mileage on their own... they already have!
Ford and Volkswagen are two that have clearly done it.

I think there is a real market for vehicles that get super high gas mileage… it is more economical and better for the environment as well. ... and from what I saw from looking at the VW.uk products, Luxury features are profound!

If the vehicles made by Ford and Volkswagen were allowed to be sold in the USA, it would spur all other mfrs. to Get With It and compete in a FREE Market.

Prices per gal. for fuel would probably go up, due to higher taxes, which have to be done to make up for the taxes lost as the result of being so much more efficient.

We would NOT be using as much fossil fuel as in the past; therefore, reducing our Demand on foreign sources of oil and promoting more to be obtained here at Home.

Overall, it would improve the Economy and make it better for everyone involved.

... just more ramblings & thoughts… based on the facts that I see…
