Lately I have had a lot of people ask me why I don’t have many SUVs on the lot anymore. Well the answer is easy. Remember back in 2008 when gas reached $4.00 a gallon for the first time? At that time it was nearly impossible to sell any vehicle that got less than 25 mpg. The big 3 auto companies scrambled to produce more fuel efficient cars, hence the production of SUVs basically came to a halt. One thing I have noticed in my 23 years of being in the business is that trends seem to take 3 years to take hold, as in 2011 with gas prices less, you could buy a fuel efficient car for a very reasonable price, just as now I have to pay a premium for SUVs and also full size trucks.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms.
