Gasoline And Those Damn SUV’s

Returned to Guam yesterday morning and discovered that regular unleaded is now $2.39 a gallon. Lovely. And still people are buying those gigantic SUV’s that guzzle the gas. Gas prices continue to climb because demand is increasing across the planet for a dwindling resource.

In a related story, I spent a week in Southern California recently and I was shocked by the traffic and congestion, especially the number of gigantic SUV’s roaming the streets. Turns out the big SUV’s are actually banned from residential streets across the state because they exceed 3 tons in weight, but the regulation is not enforced. Seems to me they ought to be rigidly enforcing that law, California could use the extra money the tickets would generate, and it would help curb people’s appetite for enormous vehicles.
