This has to be a good thing. There is little point in people switching to biofuels (which are very resource intensive — it takes as much corn to fill a gas tank with ethanol as it would to feed a person for a year) and putting them into inefficient vehicles. But Europeans, who generally pay quite a lot for their gas get fuel efficiency. Now if this were a story about the Detroit motorshow and much tighter CAFE regs then, that would be worth reading.
