Riddle me this

In Phoenix, we have car pool lanes. During commuter hours, you need two passengers or risk a $350 fine. We do this to save gas when we save rides.

Exhibit A – Scion

2008 Scion xB
 32 mpg at 65 mph

Exhibit B – an asshole in an ’06 Mustang

32 mpg at 65, 22 @ 100

Exhibit C – Mr. President

Lincoln Continental car pool
9 mpg at 30; 9@ 65

So, what do we have:

A – 32 person (1) miles per gallon – car pool violation

B – 28 person (1) miles per gallon – car pool violation
44 person (2) miles per gallon – felony speed but knock yourself out on the car pool, kids

C – 18 person (2) miles per gallon – knock yourself out on the car pool, kids

So exactly how are we saving gas worthy of a car pool in a ’78 Lincoln?

Karma:  You asshole.  You are the worst person ever, driving a Lincoln in the car pool lane when you coulda bought a Prius.
