But according to a recent report, Detroit automakers aren't producing gas-sipping vehicles fast enough.

While the average price of a gallon of gas rose from $1.12 in 1998 to $2.72 in 2007, the number of vehicles that get at least 30 mpg fell from 61 to 46, and the number that get less than 30 mpg rose from 745 to 1,083, according to the study, released Tuesday by the Consumer Federation of America.

Additionally, 73 percent of 1,000 consumers surveyed this month for the federation said U.S. automakers would sell more vehicles if they made more fuel-efficient models.
