    Yep, it's inevitable. The only hope is that it'll force people to develop RAPIDLY alternative fuels and modes of energy, all less polluting!

    How many SUV are still sold each year? Most will never even see a dirt road! The real meaning of SUV? Stupid Useless Vehicles.

    How many peoples insist on driving 4X4 because of "our Canadian winters" but don't even put 4 winter tires? My front wheels drive with winter tires fare better than any 4X4 with 4 seasons in snow.

    How many minivans and such belongs to older peoples who are NEVER more than 2 inside? You ferry more peoples once in a while? RENT a minivan for a few days!

    How many peoples drive a pick-up truck when the most they'll ever carry is grocery bags? You carry bigger items once in a while? RENT for a few days.

    How many peoples drive vehicles with big engine when the most use they have for it is driving around town? You drive in the city all the time, get a Yaris or a Fit and RENT a bigger car when you go out of town.

    The absolute in the "useless" department? Those Cadillac Escalade, Hummers and such. Those should be illegal for the "public market". Even better, the Escalade and such have no purpose at all besides projecting a "status". At least the Hummer can take a beating!

    So peoples, complaining about gas price while not giving a damn about fuel consumption is kind of pointless, don't you think?

    When I bought my last car, I had the option of a V6 or a 4 for same price, depending if I took the one on the lot or ordered. I took the 4. Why can't peoples think more about long term and practical side instead of "power" and "status"?

    I'm surprised the agencies haven't yet brought up their rates to cope with the higher cost of gasoline. Must be tough to be a driver these days.

    That would be imperial gallons. US gallons are smaller . so it is:

    1 US gallon = 3.78541178 litres

    When it hits 5 bucks a litre we'll all be wishing it was as "cheap" as it is now. I've clocked 4500 KM in April and figure I might as well drive now before it hits $1.40+ this summer.
