SUV sales defy naysayers

`As Scott Welch, a partner in a Huntley, Ill., concrete business, shopped for a new vehicle in late August to haul his family on vacation, the price of gas was topping $3 a gallon.

Welch shrugged off the record gas prices and zeroed in on a Chevrolet Suburban, one of the biggest and thirstiest sport-utility vehicles.

Does he really want a Suburban in the face of higher gas prices?

‘‘You probably don’t, but if you’ve got the means, why not?’’ Welch said while shopping at Stasek Chevrolet in Wheeling, Ill.’

Maybe “Retards who don’t give a fuck defy common sense” would be a better title for the story.
