Hey Matt, did you ever flesh out an article? If you have something and email it to me, I'll work on it/edit it/whatever.
Anyway, so if gas is really on average $10/gallon, then anyone who gets higher than average mpg is actually paying more per gallon than $10. This is by design.

Toecutter probably already has reams of data to illustrate this nicely.
