My buddy Herb in Booth, Alabama posted a link on facebook with an American vacationing overseas.

He tells about cars that get 78 miles per gallon. These cars are made right here is the U.S. but the government won’t allow them to be sold here, they must be shipped overseas.

VW is not allowed by the US government to sell high milage cars to US consumers. VW even makes the cars here that get 78 mpg but must ship it over seas. I have added this link that shows a test drive world record with the passat which was 75 mpg UShttp://www.vehix.com/blog/most-popular/fuel-efficient/vw-tdi-drives-1531-mile…*****UPDATE**** I am still upset with myself for saying “THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION”t. I understand that it is government regulations that crosses over all party lines. It was just that i had watch Obama talking about better milage cars and that was what upset me to make this video. Please understand I do not place the blame on him alone, this has been going on for decades. It seems this one poorly said statement has put off a lot of people to this message. and the wrong camera angle.
