I'm giving Obama the benefit of doubt that he meant average typical family would save $8,000 "over time" and not ANNUALLY but "over time"... I've given benefit of doubt said average family of 3 drives 36,000 miles... In his weekly radio and online address Saturday, Obama said Detroit automakers are on track to build cars that average nearly 55 miles per gallon by 2025, doubling current mileage standards. That means folks will be able to fill up every two weeks instead of every week, saving the typical family more than $8,000 at the pump over time, he said. Thats a big deal, especially as families are yet again feeling the pinch from rising gas prices. Obama: Relief from high gas prices is just 13 short years away - HUMAN EVENTS $8,000 OVER TIME????
