This morning, there were 7 (seven!) mainstream news items from all over Canada about recent high gas prices, eg:

Last week posted a piece addressing rising gas prices and how much it costs to drive America's most efficient non-EV/non-hybrid car:

With gas prices climbing across the country, penny-pinching shoppers might want to consider a low-priced, economical small car like the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage GT. The Mirage GT hatchback, brethren of the Mirage G4 sedan, carries with it some surprising features for its price — and has the gas mileage to back it up.

(Although why they focus on the top-spec GT is a mystery. If you're pinching pennies, that's definitely not the one to get.)

I bet we're going to start seeing a lot of "Top 10 most fuel efficient new cars" articles in the near future.
