This week we’re talking about one of the best ways to have fun wasting fuel as well as all the boring ways to save as much gas as we can in a crisis. First we’ll be getting into some drag racing talk with long-time Milan Dragway Track Announcer Michael G. Nastos. We’ll talk about the emerging popularity of vintage drag racing, something called “Project 1320″ and why the IRS is investigating the NHRA. In the meantime, a survey says most Americans want to get 62 miles per gallon. So why aren’t hybrids that popular? While we’re at it: why haven’t CAFE regulations ever reduced our dependence on foreign oil? John McElroy is also joined in studio by the Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo, and auto journalist Jim McCraw.
