Gas Guzzling, the new affluence?

It used to be that showing off on the highway meant buying a really expensive sports car, usually a 2-seat race car type thing.

Now it seems the new statement of wealth around the world is showing how much gas guzzling a vehicle can do, equating ridiculously low gas mileage and expensive fill-ups to ones status.

We have to make a stand here and start exporting our American creativity and marketing ingenuity to express the new and hip lifestyle for the world to aspire to...sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation!
