Hummer sales have nearly tripled from a year ago, despite $3-a-gallon gas. The Baltimore Business Journal says people are buying Hummers precisely because of high gas prices — buyers want the world to know they can afford the gas. Another interesting note on vehicle sales: One out of every four vehicles purchased from January to March 2006 had an eight-cylinder engine, according to a study by J.D. Power and Associates.

    I saw a pretty good liscence plate on a Hummer H2 the other day that said “GAS PLZ”. I had to laugh because I just knew it would make so many people mad.

    Seriously though, there are other automoiles out there that are just as bad on gas, but I guess since the Hummer is so flashy that is the one people like to moan about. Personally I’ve wanted a Hummer ever since I was a kid playing with Matchbox cars.

    Anyway, thanks for leaving a comment on my site and bringing Hummerguy.net site to my attention — its bookmarked now!
