Headline: "Frustrated owners try to unload their guzzlers":
Americans are turning away from the boxy, four-wheel-drive vehicles that have for years dominated the nation's highways. Sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks - symbols of Americans' obsession with horsepower, size, and status - are falling out of favor as consumers rich and poor encounter sticker shock at the pump, paying upward of $80 to fill gas tanks.
Uh, yeah. But, simply getting a car that gets 32 mpg instead of 20 mpg is, at best, a cosmetic change. Weaning oneself from the car addiction is the ultimate strategy.
