Green, White and Blue

Over half of US conservatives surveyed, and 67% of NASCAR fans, now consider it patriotic to buy a more fuel efficient car. The numbers come from a survey carried out for lobbying group, which exists to convince the country’s law- and car-makers that they should aim for a mandatory fuel consumption average of 40mpg. If, as the survey suggests, half of all car owners are already switching or contemplating switching to more efficient transport, the good old market economy may force the change for them.
