    Clunker Math

    Cash For Clunkers - A Huge Success!


    A vehicle at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons of gasoline a year .

    A vehicle at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year.

    So, the average clunker transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.

    They claim 700,000 vehicles – so that’s 224 million gallons / year.

    That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.

    5 million barrels of oil is about ¼ of one day’s US consumption.

    And, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $375 million dollars at $75/bbl.

    Let’s see … we spent $3 Billion to save $375 Million a year (that's a negative factor of 8 to 1).

    And how many new loans will go into default, even though the people had a drivable vehicle?

    Is there any wonder why our government is going broke? You can’t fix stupid!

    (And on 09-09-09 the president repeated his claim of being able to fix Health Care at NO additional cost - SURE!)

    Has anyone ever pointed this out to OBAMA at a speach or press conference? If so what was his response?
