Okay, I have to concede, not everyone can make it in our modern world without a car. I get it! We have one car, a Honda Fit, and in the near future we will add a motor scooter for those times when we really don’t need the car but still need to get somewhere fairly quickly.
For those who need a car, but who are looking for better gas mileage, here is a list of the top fuel efficient vehicles for 2012-2013. http://www.thesupercars.org/top-cars/most-fuel-efficient-cars/
It should come as no surprise that the Toyota Prius leads the pack with an impressive 51 mpg in the city.
What is it with Americans and their love of big vehicles? Every time I see a Hummer on the street I want to scream! Every time I see a F-350 I want to scream louder! Every time I see a full-size SUV I want to scream louder still! I simply do not get it. It is socially irresponsible to drive something that large that drinks gas like you and I drink water.
Yes, I said socially irresponsible, and I won’t take the statement back no matter whose feelings I may have harmed. What statement are people trying to make by driving a vehicle that gets 15 mpg? Facts are facts….we have a fuel crisis in the world. Hello!!!! Is anyone out there listening?
Living Simple is about responsible choices that are good for you and good for society. It is not about showing everyone how rich you are, or how powerful you are, or measuring your self-worth by the size of your possessions.
Size does matter with regards to automobiles; smaller will always be better for society.
