and what about the people that have an SUV that don't drive much? I now have about a 50 mile commute, and drive a mid size car. I'm a bigger offender than someone that owns an Expedition and drives little. Aren't I?
Is it the job of the government to tell us what to drive???

You do know some people need large trucks and what not for movement of heavy loads and so on. If you're a painter and have to carry all of your paint around, are you going to uncomfortably stuff it all in to your little Honda Civic, or would you rather place it gently in the bed of your pick-up truck???
People don't buy SUV's and Pick-ups because they want to pollute the environment or pay more for gas. They buy larger trucks because they find it much more convenient for their everyday needs.
