    Large vehicles, used cars drove 2010: Edmunds

    he past year was marked by increased demand for larger vehicles and used cars, and automakers outside Japan scaled back incentives, car shopping website Edmunds.com said in its review of 2010 trends. Consumers were warmer to trucks and sport utility vehicles as gas prices remained stable. For 2010, Edmunds expects truck sales rose 15% and SUV sales 21%. Meanwhile, sales of mid-sized and compact cars are expected to be up 7.8% and 1.1%, respectively. Hybrid car sales are seen down 8.1%. Used cars were also more popular: Their average price was US$19,345 this month.

    You are conveniently ignoring the dynamics of fuel prices. The last time we seen oil > $100/ barrel......... Hopefully you get the point.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    But, should the government be intentionally effect gas prices, just to boost hybrid car sales?

    That's not really the kind of country we want to live in, is it?

    Personally, I would rather my product sell because it's a superior product, not because conditions have been created that leave people with no other choice.

    Not to mention how the people who have no choice but to drive lower mpg vehicles are ass ****ed. Not exactly what I would call, "hope-n-change".

    Or do you want to subsidize fuel costs? How is that conservative?
    And since when does a "very conservative" poster care about the "poor"? You know, those who are sucking the unemployment teat, the welfare teat, etc.
    Today we subsidize fuel costs so the poor won't have to pay a little more for food, tomorrow we subsidize their health care. Are you sure you are a conservative?
    Somebody step on your flipflops today?

    That was sarcasm, in case someone missed the meaning between the lines...
    You must REALLY hate commuter trains then. Sound Transit promised that a new commuter train between Seattle and Everett would cost around $89 million and have a rideship of between 600,000 and 800,000 by 2010. The project actually cost $385 million and has an annual ridership of around 150,000. But here's the real kicker..... the cost to ride the train is $3 each way, $6 for a round trip. The taxpayers subsidize each round trip $547.

    What would the ridership figures look like if each round trip reflected the actual cost or $550. Even if you take construction costs out of the fares, the true cost to operate the train would result in a $38. fare. That's for a trip of less than 30 miles.

    How's that for a subsidy ??

    Logan, Utah area transit provides free bus rides.....ridership per bus is often, if not usually, lower than half a dozen passengers, at least from the north end of the route, in Hyde Park where we live half the year.

    The Utah DOT head paid a multi million dollar settlemennt to the low bidder for a highway contract, when the low bidder did not get the contract, but a higher bidder did. The payment was made, supposedly, without the governor or the state legislature knowing in advance. The governor got re-elected anyway.....and last I heard, the DOT head is still working there....

    These public transit systems are more often than not an excuse to keep construction companies busy, and their owners rich.

    Yes ... because having high gas prices makes the populous want to vote for you ...

    It worked so well for Bush.
