Gas prices are inching up this week – $3.21 a gallon at my local Arco – but some car manufacturers have the nerve to make a vehicle that only gets 8 miles to the gallon.
Greencars.org put together a list of the greenest cars of 2008 ( Honda has four cars on the list), and the meanest. Topping the meanest vehicles to the environment is the Volkswagen Touareg. Unsurprisingly, the Hummer H2 is on the mean list. But not as close to the top as I would have thought.
For answers to energy basics, such as “How many gallons of gas are in a barrel?” (42) And “Who is the top supplier of crude oil to the U.S.?” (Canada. Yes, Canada.) You can visit the government’s Energy Information Administration.
