They're Driving the Future in the Fatherland
AutoWeek magazine editor Rich Ceppos made a significant prediction last week. Writing from Germany, where he'd been driving German cars and paying German prices for gas, he noted that "it foretells what we (in the U.S.) will be driving in the future."
Converted to American measurements and money, a gallon of German gas costs $8.02. "Super Plus," the top grade, goes for $9.50. Diesel, used in about half of new European cars (versus 3 percent in the United Sates), runs a hefty $6.52.
"Americans," Ceppos noted, "are just beginning to think about the fuel cost of going to ... Grandma's house. For Europeans, it's been a way of life."
