Truck and SUV sales soaring

The American consumer has the attention span of a goldfish...
After nearly a year of flagging sales, low gas prices and fat incentives are reigniting America's taste for big vehicles.

Trucks and SUVs will outsell cars in December… Meanwhile the forecast finds that sales of hybrid vehicles are expected to be way down.

This month, trucks and SUVs will make up 51% all vehicles sold in the U.S…. In November, Prius sales were already down 48% compared to the same month in 2007…


  1. We just don't get it, do we? If we had started redesigning cars and looking for alternative fuels in 1972 (oil embargo), we might have something amazing by now.

  2. I will agree that people are pretty stupid when it comes to this kind of stuff, but don't forget there are a LOT of people that actually USE trucks that would be stupid not to snap them up right now with the prices they are going for. If you can pick something brand new for half-off sticker price, that's hard to pass up!
