Was watching Motorweek on PBS this evening and heard the news reporter say SUV sales were down 15% last year. I found this story dated May 18, 2004. http://money.cnn.com/2004/05/17/pf/autos/suvs_gas/ Also, saw a commercial for a new Honda Hybrid Civic with in town gas mileage of 47mpg. I didn't see what mileage was for highway. I rode in the Civic years ago and found it to be a good ride for me. Now, I have other considerations and have to drive something else. However, if I didn't I'd check one out. Never figured I'd ever be hawking cars, LOL.
