Gas Prices have been a major influence on what car consumers are interested in. No matter if it is a new car or a used car, the fuel mileage is slowly becoming one of the top factors in the decission making process.
If you are trying to sell your used car you should concider the fuel mileage a selling point if it gets 20 mpg or more. This could be the sole factor that convinces a buyer to purchase your used car over a gas guzzling SUV.
Gas Prices are not going to go down anytime soon. Richard Nixon set a 1980 deadline for ending U.S. dependence on foreign oil, Didn't Happen. And its not likely to happen. Maybe what "we the peope" need is for the government to remove tax from fuel. Just a thought.
