So yeah i drive a 97 T-Bird with a V8 in it right... so i might be one of those people that refuses to give up their big gas hogging cars no matter what the price of gas costs... or i might not be. I have been looking around for a smaller 4cyl car (ie Focus, Escort, Sentra, Carolla etc.) Well turns out that any nice ones that i would be caught drving in happen to be about $6k and up... im sorry but i dont have that kind of money... so heres my point. Why WOULD i take out a loan for $6K on a car that maybe only gets 10 more mpg's when my car has been totally paid off since the day i bought it. I really dont like the way gas prices are looking and they WILL get worse; but nothing is going to be done about it and i wont be making any more money doing the same job im doing, so why should i even care? no one else does. I just thought of this because its not cost effecient for a working person who lives paycheck to paycheck as it is to go out and get a loan for a more gas friendly vehicle. If i go into anymore details this rant will become strictily political. Oh well se ya next earth day ill still be killing the environment just like all of my blue collar brethren.
