Today, I had a conversation with two other kids in a class of mine. He was looking at getting a zx2. Then a 90s cummins diesel. Now a Jeep Cherokee or some 97 buick.

Yesterday, I told him he'd pay out the ... to drive that jeep and that gas would only go back up. He was shocked/doubtful to believe gas would be more expensive again...

Today. He claims jeep's actually get pretty good gas mileage. "17 mpg is good" he said and his friend agreed with him. They even went on to defend it saying 17 really isn't bad at all.

My friend and I rebuked saying our car's getting 30 seem terrible to us and that no way could 17 have ever been considered good.

I wish this conversation had never happened.
