No but the sale on econo boxes and hybrids went up suv's went down when gas headed to 3 bucks a gallon. Ford and GM believe that America was attempting to conserve fuel and the almighty dollar.

He can buy-high and sell-low so maybe you could buy-low, sell-high

I personally can't wait for the higher gas prices to come. there are too many fuel gulping cars here in TN. And little rich ricers in their cars running around. Once it goes up I'll see more mopeds, and motorcycles(cause thats how TN rolls w/o cars) I know that once the prices go up I will be rolling around in a Dunebuggy with a flatfour behind me... and at least the new ULSD vehicles are manditory for 07 and up. Take that deisel enthusiests. Go blow your soot on someone elses car..
