We’re all aware of the effects that the rising price of fuel is having on just about every part of our lives but there are still a few changes happening that you might not expect as one journalist in the US found out this week.
Evidently he has to travel to Houston and he was going to need a hire car while he was there. It seems that in Houston – since the fuel prices started to climb – you can hire a 4WD cheaper than you can hire a small, medium or sedan.
The same reporter wonders if the used-car market could be being turned upside down too as big gas guzzlers go for a song while more fuel-efficient small cars increase in value.
I doubt that it is anything that we will see here.
