Can't wait for Government Health Care

-----(I'm not sure about these Numbers but I wouldn't doubt it)

A clunker that travels 12,000 miles a year at 15 mpg uses 800
gallons of gas a year.

A vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480
gallons a year.

So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction will reduce US
gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.

They claim 700,000 vehicles so that's 224 million gallons saved per
year.


That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.


5 million barrels is about 5 hours worth of US consumption.

More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $70 per barrel costs
about $350 million dollars


So, the government paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $350
million.



We spent $8.57 for every dollar saved.

How good a deal was that ???

They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!
