After driving across this country twice, I know that a lot of it is spread far and wide. People do need larger vehicles and off road vehicles. City driving is really not the major usage of roads. In the cities, a lot of folks have SUV's, and I don't see evidence of too many of 'em going off road. My guess is they feel a deficit somewhere in their lives and have to look like the big dog! Especially with all the desk jockeys around. A lot of company executives get 'em, because there are tax limits to what a company can provide for them in perks, and for some reason, SUV's are exempt.

I'd say about half and half diesel and gas (mine is gas). I've never actually seen a Mercedes truck on this side of the Atlantic, I guess there isn't much market for foreign trucks in the country where Ford, Dodge, and Chevy live.

And welcome back, Janie.

Just did a little math, we're paying $5.868 per gallon at the moment... That kind off explains why those big American cars aren't to popular around here...

Well they don't export the cheap ones.
But that was kind of interesting, my first time in Europe, the first Mercedes I saw was a garbage truck.
