    Americans dont mind the 16 mpg, add to the fact na wala namang masyadong traffic sa US, at mataas ang standard of living nila duon

    16 mpg is is 6.79 liters per km [1mpg is 0.42lpkm].
    and no, people here in the US don't mind the price of gas much. in fact americans felt the crunch when even in TX where gas is usually lower than the rest of the nation, 1 gallon of regular gas (87 octane) reached $2.05. but did the sale of gas guzzlers (V8 trucks and SUVs) go down? NOPE. trucks and truck-derivatives (vans, SUVs) outsell cars here to 53% to 47% (or somewhere close to that).
    1 gallon is 3.79 liters BTW.The US is the only country in the world that uses the english system.fahrenheit,anyone?

    dami pala buy ng trucks sa US talaga.mga gas guzzlers

    if you make 16mpg, that's something like 6.8km per liter. Of course, city driving in the US is still much faster than Metro Manila driving. ;) You'll probably get 4 km/l.

    for me still the SUVs with diesel engine, like the Local Pajero ang Trooper or the Nissan Patrol, You know naman traffic sa Pinas and the road we have here, kahit newly constructed huhukayin parin, try mo humataw sa EDSA w/ a car, im sure nasa CASA ka tmrw. And knowing the big 3 na evey month may announcement na tataas presyo ng gasolina. So dami 4 sale na American SUVs at ang re-sale value super down na down. So mga pinoy kahit questionable ang road worthiness ng mga Subic SUVs at kahit amoy talyer ang interior buy pa rin masabi lang na naka SUV sila.

    Sa mga poor man naman they buy the high end AUVs
