Fuel me once...

From today's NYT: The demand for fuel-efficient cars is so heavy that the production lines aren't being able to keep up. “This seismic shift in the marketplace has definitely taken us and everybody else by surprise,” said George Pipas, Ford’s market analyst. No shit, Sherlock!

No one saw this coming??

No, because they were wearing either blinkers or blindfolds. You don't see what you don't want to see :(

I'll see your Ford and raise you a Delta.

P.S. Did you hear what happened in your neck of the woods yesterday?

wow, i'm glad i wasn't there!
i feel more sympathy for delta than for ford. at least they're not making inane remarks.

yes, very cute. i think vespas have some models that go as high as 80 mpg.

as for your other question, i'm torn between 'performance anxiety' and 'the heebie-jeebies'. more analysis required.
