Gasaholics’ Selfishness

Every time you go into a gas station and pay $2.10 for regular gasoline, thank the Hummers, Excursions, Navigators, Suburbans and the rest of the monster SUVs. Gasoline is governed by supply and demand. When you demand six, seven, eight miles per gallon, the demand skyrockets. Maybe you do need a 6,000-pound vehicle to go to the supermarket and to the children’s soccer games. Well, I doubt it. The rest of us who drive cars averaging more than 20 miles per gallon are paying the price of your selfishness and inconsideration for the planet. Will this price escalation bring some of these owners to this realization?
