Bin Laden’s death, higher gas prices and American fuel economy
Retaliation threats to drive oil prices higher?
As America celebrates the death of Osama bin Laden, fear has spread into the oil markets and the possibility of higher oil prices loom great as the threat of retaliations add more uncertainty into the energy markets. This morning on CNBC several energy experts claimed the trend for oil prices is now higher.
Nevertheless, America! – has been a common mantra last night and into this morning. Feeling strongly American? Why not a new fuel efficient American car?
Since higher gas prices seem primed to stick around for a while, maybe it’s time for a hybrid purchase. Whether it’s a sedan like the Ford Fusion hybrid, or a full-sized pickup like the Chevy Silverado hybrid or even a plug-in vehicle like the Chevy Volt, the Big 3 offer a number of compelling fuel efficient options.
Let us not forget, America’s foreign oil dependence not only funded Osama bin Laden, but also fueled his hate for America. So, if you are in the market for a new car, make it a fuel efficient one. There are a lot of great American options out there.
And, even if you buy a foreign hybrid with great fuel economy, that’s also a pretty American thing to do.
Help make America stronger, buy a fuel efficient vehicle.
