For sure, it will change our economy in ways we will probably not be happy with. Think I will go top off the Newmar!
Uh, people who buy high power cars don't care about the price of gas. My Corvette averages 20mpg all around and it's my driver, putting about 8k miles a yr. How much would I save to drive a sedan with 30mpg? Not enough to turn my head. Life is too long not to have what you want because of mpg. Since you own a Newmar, unless it's real old, is a higher priced rig. Remember, you can't take it with you and your children will just waste it. Buy what you want now while you can still enjoy it. There's no telling what the gov't will do to us in the future.
