So, according to our governemnt, getting rid of each average "clunker" will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.
They claim that 700,000 'clunkers" have been removed from our roads, saving us 224 million gallons of gas per year.
That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil, which is approximately 25 percent of our daily consumption.
At $75 a barrel, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $350 million dollars.
Meaning, we all (read taxpayers) contributed to spending $3 billion to save $350 million.
And these are the same people who want to run our health care?
Remeber these facts when you hear their estimates of what the new health care plan will cost us (read taxpayers, one more time).
