Re: Gas Guzzler Sales Down...So Are Fuel Sippers?

The article doesn't seem to mention used sales of guzzlers or sippers, but it says that sales of new guzzlers and sippers alike are way down and sales of in-between vehicles are not down.

My guess is that with the economy so awful, people who would buy guzzlers are buying less thirsty vehicles and the rest aren't buying new vehicles at all.

Yeah, the article doesn't say much and leaves a lot of questions as you guys pointed out.
