WTF do they expect people to do with the cars that they already have? Take a loss on trade? I mean, if gas prices go up then even new car dealers can't get rid of the 'gas guzzlers' so they either don't take them or they give very little for them on trade. So I guess with all of that disposable income people have they will run out and buy some GM hybrid vehicle? Or considering the state of our economy, inflation and the fact that things aren't improving will those with disposable income put their money aside to make sure to be able to pay their bills? I'm going with the latter.
