No more big government vehicles

NO MORE BIG GOVERNMENT . . . VEHICLES

04/28/2011

The government is downsizing . . . the vehicles in its fleet, that is. The Detroit News reports the General Services Administration, or GSA, is buying more sub-compact cars as opposed to full-size vehicles. This will have a big impact on the efficiency of the fleet, which numbers some 600,000. Fuel economy is estimated to improve by 21 percent this year to 23.4 miles per gallon, up from 19.1 MPG today. This is projected to save some 2.4 million gallons of fuel and $9 million taxpayer dollars annually.

Thumbs down What's Up With This?

If the government has a stake in both GM and Chrysler, then why did I follow a Toyota Sienna minivan with Government plates on it yesterday?
