Rising fuel costs are putting the brakes on SUV sales.

GM says they are cutting back after doing all they could to load up the planet for their pals in the oil business. No dealership is going to want these gas guzzling SUV's and trucks on their lots for any reason..... just like in the 1980's.
Thats great free advertising for that person..-eg
This is why gas needs to stay over $4 per gallon. As soon as it drops, Americans will start buying these things again (because we are stupid sheep). Raise the gas tax, whatever....just keep gas high.

Lindsay... you can't sell it because you have it overpriced for today's market... Kelley Blue Book puts the value of that vehicle, for sale by a private party, about $2K less than your asking price... and the trade-in value to a dealer is almost $4K less than your asking price... keep driving it, taxes are lower than a new car, insurance is cheaper than a new car, and you probably don't have any payments either. If you drive 20K annual miles at 15mpg in town (your figure), it will cost you about $220 more per month in gas than a little, bitty car that gets 30mpg in town, but you can avoid the new car payment and the increased insurance and taxes that comes with that new car. Drive your Explorer until it falls apart.
