Moderate sized American SUVs get around 18-20 miles per gallon (which is crappy, but whatever). More reasonable American cars are in the 25-30 mpg range. I don't know what this "mile per gallon" you are speaking of is about.

A. Wildlife preserves, so what? 95% maybe more of Alaska will continue to be an empty depressing tundra.
The other points were at least worthy but that one missed me completely. Im too far from ever agreeing with that view just IMHO

Fyron: It seems I must resurrect the old "[joke] [/joke]" tags. It's a joke with a semi-serious point.

Gandalf: Maybe ignore the depressing, but Alaska is just tundra, permafrost with the occasional moose. The world is not short of either of those enviroments. Or moose for that matter.

Take 10% off the Alaskan wildlife preserve and nobody would notice, unlike, say Bamboo forests or African savannah plains. Those last two areas are rare and full on endagered animals Alska, frankly, isn't.

A point that conflicts with reality?

Did you actually read the post I made?

Now I accept that no US car actually does such a low mpg that it become more than one gallon per mile, but US designed cars have the worst fuel efficency of every car in their respective classes, baring exotics and other oddities. So to express that point I didn't laboriously spell it out but was slightly ironic.

From now on, when I remember , I will use [irony] [/irony] tags for those with a limited sense of humour

I filled up my car today and it was $1.099 per liter this time. It looks like these high prices of over $1 per liter is not going to go away. Now it costs me $50 to fill up the tank and I do that about once every two weeks. I should ride a bike or walk more to save money and get exercise at the same time.

Hmm, maybe this thread and the 'virtual robbery' thread should be merged.
