65mpg car made to save US – NOT!!!

So I’m reading about this neat little Ford car called the Econetic that gets 65 mpg. Just when we need something to really help US and the overrun costs of fuel we are told ‘nope not allowed’. You have got to be kidding. This is ridiculous! With the Smart Car still to be really seen here, now we have a chance to have an option. But, Ford says NO (really our environmental rules) to something that would improve our standing in the ‘green’ footprint and fuel consumption arena. And then Ford says it would just be too expensive for us to have it made here! Ford says no, our great government says no, and of course we are being told that WE say no. Come on now! What do YOU really think?We keep being told about all these great fuel saving veichles and yet are told we can’t have them. We are only allowed somewhat improved efficiency vehicles that still are getting about 30mpg or less . My 1972 VW Bug gets 34mpg! How long did it take for us to get back to those levels??? PLEASE COMMENT!
