SUVs Deemed “Uncool”. Consumers are finding several reasons to rethink these gas guzzlers. [The Motley Fool] SUVs are uncool. For people who transport bricks and tools, they’re cool. A mob of soccer kids, even. But a solo commuter on a highway to work, uncool. It seems like most of the traffic accidents I see in New Hampshire involve difficult road conditions (rain, snow, fog), aggressive driving, high-speed, and SUVs. Three tons and four wheel drive mean nothing to black ice. Good riddance. People who guzzle gas support our dependence on the oil industry, foreign oil, instability of foreign countries, and perhaps terrorism. (Okay, terrorism is a reach, almost as bad as the current administration’s anti-drug commercials. Nobody’s buying them, either.) Not very All-American, is it?
