America: Arab cock, lungs-deep.
Highway taxes, yo. Higher mileage means less tax dollars for .gov to piss away.
This has never been a secret
the politicians that claim they want to raise MPG on vehicles are the same politicians who always want more of your money
These fuckos will just raise the current taxes on fuel, increase registration fees - you'll have to pay $35 a month instead of $35 or so a year. increase drivers license fees, more toll roads, tax you on the number of miles you drive - when you do your annual registration (or monthly) you'll have to pay a tax based on the number of miles you drove, this will of course encourage odometer tampering so I wouldn't want to buy a used car which means you'll buy a new car which means you'll pay more sales tax
We never should have allowed them to tax lobor, investments, and fuel - its just pure stupidity on any level of economics
I'm all in favor of taxing consumption, but fuel should not be taxed at a higher level than anything else
In 100-200 years, there's not going to be alot of cars on the roads. Mostly trucks/commerical vehicals. The suburbs will have be so thoroughly developed and there will be so many sprawling 10 million people metroplexes due to population density, 'eco-friendly' trendy is going to be shit like this:
The reason why European cars have better mileage is because gas costs more there (due to much, much higher taxes on fuel).
And, since this fucker was there, he should know that the gas he put in his Passat cost him more than it would've cost him to run a less gas-efficient car in the US. Since he doesn't mention that little detail, he's either a bullshit artist or severely retarded.
I'd rather we just nuke ourselves.
What does one have to do with the other? If gas is $8 a gallon, and your car gets 60-70 mpg, you're still getting 60-70 mpg even if the same car was here in the USA getting $3-4 per gallon. All these politicians trying to demonize gas & make us all feel like shit for using so much, should allow the cars sold in the USA to get that kind of gas mileage, at the current prices. Two things accomplished. 1: we use less gas. 2: we all take a nice bump to the bottom line, making us all much more likely to spend that saved money in other areas.
Let's face it, on this one, people like Kirk are spot-on. The government is artificially creating, sustaining and supporting the so-called energy crisis. There's no reason for high gas prices, and low gas mileage. It's a huge money grab for the people who get the oil money.
It's basically the farm subsidy racket.
here is an even better example
the VW up which is to get almost 100 MPG
never to be seen here
Norm is a hipster. Pay no mind.
When you live in the boonies like I do, and drive 50 miles a day to work and back, your priorities change. I drive a small shitbox just for the mileage. I have a 4x4 Expedition for hauling the kids, but it costs to go very far. Better than my 9.5 MPG Excursion though.
I commute almost 4 hrs a day and wear out cars pretty quick. I only buy sports cars (I made a promise to myself that if I had to drive that far I'd at least be comfortable) but my BMW z3 only gets 17 mpg and my miata 29 mpg. If I could get 65-70 I'd be thrilled. $25 a day in gas sucks royally.
