More Proof...

...if any were needed, that the American consumer is the dumbest animal on earth. Today's Washington Post has an article on the recent increase in auto sales. This part caught my eye:

Auto sales in the United States jumped 11 percent over the year, with the strongest single gain coming with midsize sport-utility vehicles such as the Jeep Cherokee and the Honda Pilot.

According to the government's fuel economy rankings, the Cherokee and the Pilot rank near the bottom in gas mileage among cars by their respective companies ( doesn't create firm links for search results, but if you click on "search by make" and then "2011," you'll find links to both Jeep and Honda gas mileage rankings).

And of course, gas prices are going up.
