    Will be interesting to see how the sales change when gas prices go up again. Jumped 20 cents overnight 2 days ago on the corner by my house, I guess they must have gotten a tanker truck with more expensive gasoline in when I wasn't looking. Saw an article this summer saying prices would jump after january 1 due to lower sulfur gasoline being mandated. Haven't heard anything on that for a while. I'm beginning to get the impression the party is over for cheap gas.

    Why isn't the Avalon Hybrid listed in the top 10? It should be #9 just after the C-Max with it's 688 units sold.
    Not a big deal but I just bought one so I am sensitive in this area.
