So much for alt-fuels

Now, where's the article about the surge in SUV sales? We actually need to keep gas at $3.00/gal. to beat it into peoples' heads that we need more fuel-efficient vehicles on the road.

WASHINGTON - Americans are celebrating plunging gasoline prices by hitting the roads.

After barely rising during the summer months, gasoline demand rose swiftly in September, the American Petroleum Institute said Wednesday.
The U.S. average for a gallon of regular Wednesday was $2.219, down 27 percent from this year's peak of $3.04 a gallon on Aug. 10 and off 52 cents from a year ago. The lowest average price Wednesday was in Missouri, where it was $2.02 a gallon; the highest was in Hawaii, where the average was $2.98.
