The fact that modern cars are much nicer, faster, powerful etc should not be an excuse why they dont get better mileage. All it does is demonstrate that they could but are ill-designed to do so because in the last 20 years no one has really cared to make efficient cars.

Hybrids exist because of the novelty of new technology, but in the US efficiency for the sake of efficiency has all but gone off the scene.
