       -----You probably had thoughts that this program did not make sense, so here are more details as to why you felt this was not reasonable.

       








       
















       

















       














      A vehicle at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons a year of gasoline.






             




      A vehicle at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year.  
           
      So, the average clunker transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.  
           


      They claim 700,000 vehicles – so that's 224 million gallons / year.




      That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.







              




      5 million barrels of oil is about ¼ of one day's US consumption.




      And, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $350 million dollars at $75/bbl.





              




      So, we all contributed to spending $3 billion to save $350 million.
      How good a deal was that ???
       
      They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!
