First, to be sure, a prime reason why American and Canadian motorists seek fuel economy for their vehicle rides, has to do significantly or largely with money to save money in their fuel costs. At a time when gas prices are near record highs in America and Canada, it is, rather quite understandable that many people would be searching for ways to "beat the pump" to make gas money go a little bit longer. Recent news reports saturate the newspapers and the news media and airways daily, with stories about the economic woes and horrors of motorists "at the pump" who face escalating gas prices. 50 or more, thus cutting painfully deeper and deeper into their already overstretched home budgets. 5 a gallon for the U.S.) only recently. 1,500 per year in fuel costs could be a major reward you get, for example, by choosing to purchase the latest most efficient vehicle of the year in a particular class, according to the latest U.S. Not a small (money) saving by any means or calculations whatsoever!
However, there are more reasons and benefits. It is more than just that. But seeking to attain, or actually attaining, fuel economy and fuel savings, are NOT all about or only about money, however. Or, about personal money savings that go back into one's own personal pocket. Rather, attaining that goal achieves an even higher "reward" and purpose a national, patriotic, and more "strategic" purpose for America and/or Canada. In deed, for the Mother Earth! In fact, this "strategic" or public benefit or purpose, rather than merely private or personal benefit or purpose, is the major reason advanced by U.S. But, get this. That is only counting since 1990! What about going a little further back before then? But, get this connection: this 60-percent-plus figure in the amount of total oil usage by Americans today, is also largely imported, particularly from the Middle East. And consequently, what this means is that America remains increasingly "oil dependent" on foreign countries.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, at least more than 50 percent of the oil used to produce the gasoline you put in your tank today is imported. Here's the point here, therefore. 4.4 billion per week (the U.S. That's money, or a part thereof, that could be used to fuel our own American economy in whole or in part. Finally, saving gas, or having a better fuel economy, has yet another major dividend for the larger society and the humankind that is far more than just your personal pocketbook it's good for the environment. Vehicles with lower fuel economy burn more fuel, creating more CO2. By expert estimate, for every gallon of gasoline your vehicle consumes (burns), about 20 pounds of CO2 (170cu. Ft) is spewed into the atmosphere. Summed up very simply, the task of attaining better fuel economy or of using less gas for your vehicle, is not just good for your pocketbook. It is, even just as importantly, if not more so, also good for our nations, as well as for our environment, and our Planet Earth. What could be a better or more noble purpose and objective overall, for a society, or for a member of that society!
Loved every minute of it. My husband was on a business trip to Toronto once and he came back with great memories of that city. Thanks for your comment. Glad that you liked them. Thanks for the comment. Wow Peggy, what beautiful gardens and great pics of them. Hi Cris, Happy that you could accompany us on our stroll. The photos were taken with an old Canon camera. Today, I would have the advantage of having my digital camera. I would know what the photos look like before getting home and hoping that they were good. Thanks for reading and commenting. Beautiful gardens, Peggy, the pics look like old poastcards, some like paintings, what a beautiful place. They certainly have their share of beautiful gardens there. Thanks for reading and commenting. This sounds like a garden haven and worth a trip with nothing else in mind except a peaceful stroll in the gardens. We really did have fun together. It was a period of time in our lives when the 3 of us traveled together each summer. We always chose new and different places to explore.
