Gas price is really a factor in resale value of large cars. When I suggest a relative to buy a used V8, he'll go "what? r u nut? no way."
Even though gas price in socal is "stable" around $4, it's still high for many people with limited budgets. At intersection where there's a gas station at each corner, motorists flood the station that sells 2-3 cents cheaper per gallon. Praise their math and patience, 5 minute wait in line, 15-gallon fill up saves at most 45 cents. Unfortunately, I'm all of them, owning V8 so I must save on gas by getting in line. fyi, I've seen somewhat new Porsche, Ferrari getting in line behind me. that's no joke.
