"I don't even think Art would want this one."

Yeah, I kind of do. <grin!> I could use it to run over to Mi-ma's house on the back roads between here and Christiana where MIL lives. It would be fun to drive.

I just feel like someone could make a small inexpensive car that gets great gas mileage? I'm thinking the Tata Nano might fit the bill if the United States would allow it in? A little inexpensive second car that gets excellent gas mileage that would be perfect for running to the grocery store, the post office, bank, doctor or dentist office, etc.

When I drive around town running errands I'm appalled at the number of behemoth SUV's and giant trucks on the road with just one person in them? Don't they know they are wasting our descendants future? Oil and gas are limited resources. When it's gone, it's gone! Regardless of whether we've reached Peak Oil or not there is a limited amount of oil in the Earth and there will come a time when our descendants are going to be pissed off that we've used up all the damn oil!

Most vehicles on the road have only one person riding in them. It's such a waste of resources it's appalling. I drive a 2005 Nissan Sentra that gets 31 miles to the gallon in town. I wish I was driving even a smaller more economically sensible car. I'd like to get even better gas mileage.
