It's all a lie. The rates they keep increasing the gas taxes far outweigh any supposed mileage increases in vehicles.

What's funny is the fact that they keep telling us that cars are getting more fuel efficient, but the reality for most is that cars are getting LESS efficient than they were in the past because they keep making them larger and larger with each new redesign.
