There are normal cars sold in Europe and South America that can get over 75 mile per gallon. They can't be sold in the US ostensibly because the EPA says they produce "too many pollutants per gallon". But they do produce less pollutants per mile which is the statistic that really matters. These cars produce less pollution, period. The real reason they are outlawed in the US is because the fuel is taxed by the gallon. So if mileage rates are doubled, then fuel tax revenue will be cut in half.
So any of you who actually believe that bullshit coming out of Washington DC that they want more fuel efficient cars, then you're falling for a total bullshit grift. No wonder the Chevy Volt is such a piece of shit. It must've been intentionally designed to be a piece of shit; so US car buyers would think that high mileage equates to a car being an unreliable piece of shit.
Our country is run by gangsters. And they have destroyed our economy with their crony capitalist, fucked up system of bribes and ripoffs orchestrated out of Congress and the White House.
