Drives U CrazyAre rural readers mathematically challenged?

Fellow reader Dave Rush wonders, he writes: “I have never been able to understand why people living outside urban areas usually drive less fuel-efficient vehicles. When forced to travel greater distances, why do North Americans choose vehicles that guzzle more fuel?”

I am convinced that our math skills or transportation logic is impaired.

Do you have an explanation for him? And what drives-u-crazy?

One thought on “Drives-U-Crazy: Rural Vehicle Choices Questioned

    Dale Allen says:

    Perhaps it is because a truck is needed to do all the things we do, like taking our own garbage and recycling to the transfer station, delivering our own appliances etc.that we buy in town – any number of reasons. Why don’t more urban dwellers use public transportation? — On a different topic, what drives me crazy are the 140 kmph drivers there are on the highways!
