How Many Miles to the Gallon?
CBS's Leslie Stahl clearly didn't buy Detroit's assertion that it can't build more fuel efficient vehicles in the October 12, 2003 episode of 60 Minutes entitled, "How Many Miles Per Gallon? " She talks to experts who say Americans can drive their big vehicles while feeling good about reducing their fuel consumption, and it could be done today. But convincing a spoiled car-buying public who are more interested in cup-holders than oil imports will be a far more daunting challenge.
