Smart Drivers react to 10 dollar a gallon gas in Italy!

Smart Drivers React to 10 dollar a gallon gas in Italy

Ten bucks a gallon for gas! And you thought we had it bad in South Carolina?

You don't wonder for long why the cars are so small and compact in Italy.

Have you ever seen a Smart Car? It's sharp in more ways than one.

Sure the streets are super narrow and sure, the parking is easier to find when you drive something that's the size of a the engine area on some of Americas bigger vehicles.

But the locals say its the gas prices that really drive the size of the cars that are popular in Italy and other European cities.

Makes me wonder how long it will take American manufacturers to react with more small sized fuel efficient American vehicles?

And how high the prices will have to get at home before more Americans are willing to buy them!
