Finally! SUVs Start to Die

Like many of you out there, I have been craving the demise of the almighty SUV market. The high price of gas has finally taken its toll.

According to an article at Autoblog, "The rocketing cost of gasoline, and diesel fuel, is having a ripple effect on the SUV market. With consumers trading in their behemoths by the thousands in exchange for more frugal transportation, dealers are stuck with a surplus of unwanted sport-utes sitting on their lots with values dissolving."

HA! Now maybe I (and millions of other Americans) can get from A to B without some jackass taking up two lanes and three parking spots.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I am basically in celebration mode because of these gas prices. If that is what it takes to remove the *ridiculous* amount of people that drive these because they are afraid to say "I need a minivan"- So be it!

Not to mention most SUV drivers think they are riding Porsche 911s not oversized bloated pigs when they erratically change lanes, ride the fast lane, etc.

Physics idiots; do you speak it?
