I'm confident that additional, efficient vehicles will be offered with the next 2 years, so I'm holding out, unless the Integra is rendered undriveable. As frustrating as it is with the automatic, I've become quite fond of her With the hatch and seats folded, she'll haul a lot of stuff that a small crossover vehicle may have a slight edge on -- but the 'Teg will get better FE in-between. The car has amazed me over the last 3 years from simlicity under the hood/reliability to the fun-factor in handling.
EVIDENTLY gas is too cheap. When stupid punks with nothing better to do can afford to put on 200 miles per night going up and down and up and down Main street, and when commuters of every stripe think it is reasonable to commute 200 miles per day- in 4x4 pickups and suvs no less- obviously the resource is not getting the proper value assigned to it.
There is but one solution (with its problems, too!)... Gas rationing! Stamps would stop (a lot of) the waste! Enforcement would be a problem...but the lessons learned in WW 2 could be applied. IMHO
