On my way back from visiting my grandmother yesterday, I spied a sign with an unexpected come-on at a used-car lot:
"Why overpay elsewhere"
I can't be the only one whose internal voice completes the question with, "... when you can overpay here?" It's not just me, right?
Meanwhile, I was stopped at a light, so I had time to count, and about half the vehicles on the lot were SUVs. This may confirm the Globe story of a few weeks ago, and common sense expectations, that people are bailing out of SUVs, finally, because gas prices are giving them no choice. I say "may" because, frankly, I never used to count, so for all I know, the percentage on that lot, or any other, is the same as it ever was.
