I certainly do see a lot of SUVs with "for sale" in the window lately. Let's hope it's a trend.

Hell, I'm thinking about picking up a second Avalanche. Maybe with all this noise about gas they might get some good deals out on current inventory

I'd like to get either a hybrid or a small car but I will NOT get rid of my 4-Runner!!!!!!!!!!!
Besides, it will be paid off in a year & 3 months.

I was watching on the news that CARMAX doesn't buy SUV's anymore and that Kelly Blue Book stop listing them because their value dropped daily.

Well you see, Norm, it’s like this…A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

$4.65 on Fort Hunt Road...I think that has to be the most expensive gas station in VA...If they sold diesel,it would be $6/gallon.

yeh i enjoy the utility of my lil isuzu axiom. I can haul the family (gf's daughter and 2 dogs) without issue and drop the back seat and move ish with no problem. I can tow a car and my bikes as well. I am thinkin about a old beater for commuting this winter when its just too cold to ride to work. Ill keep the axiom til it dies.

$6/gal for regular and I'll start thinking about selling - but even then I probably wouldn't, I'll just buy a Prius and make that my primary vehicle.
