I'm surrounded by mouthbreathers in lifted F250's that maybe actually tow something once per year and I'm sure just blame everyone else if fuel prices creep up, there is no freaking way on earth these people would ever ever freaking ever buy a "gay" Toyota Prius or any other economical car. Good luck.
