Ahh, automakers. I guess it's not their fault that Americans are spoiled and want nothing but big fuel inneficient autos. At least that's the way they paint the picture. They cant't meet fuel economy standards (DaimlerChrysler has a fleet in Europe that gets 35mpg as compared tot he 24-25mpg their fleet in the US gets. Not their fault-Europeans are used to expensive gas and are willing to drive smaller vehicles. So it's our fault There is something to this, of course, but how lame to pass the buck like that and play the poor downtrodden put-upon.
