Blame it on EPA: CARS (light-duty vehicles) must meet "tight" EPA emissions standards, while TRUCKS have "looser" emission standards. The Prius V is classified as a car (Light Duty Vehicle) while most CUV are being classified as trucks (H.D. Vehicle).

That seems to be the point where everyone looses their minds.
In Brisbane Australia at the moment we pay $1.45 per Litre which is more than $4 us dollars a gallon.
All that happens is people start complaining more but don't stop using/buying big cars.

Those different emission standards for vehicles that often are too close when it comes to their GVWR and load capacities is pointless.
