Let them drive a Chevy Volt! That was President Obama's response to a citizen concerned about historically high gas prices. He actually told the man that he should think about a trade-in. Of course, the President doesn't need to worry about a buying a new car - the Chevy Volt costs only $40,000. Or the costs of commuting to work at $4.00 per gallon. Or the taxes, registration and insurance. Or trying to fit a family of more than 4 into a fuel efficient car. And maybe he thinks shippers of produce to supermarkets should also trade in their 18-wheelers for Chevy Volts. But he doesn't have to worry about the rising cost of groceries either. "Let them eat cake!"
