Why does government hand out billions for the development of more fuel efficient vehicles when the exact same vehicle I drive in North America is available in Europe with better fuel efficiency (I won't even get into how today's supposed fuel efficient vehicles still can't top the Honda Civic of I think it was 1994)?

I can think of lots of things that make me shake my head in terms of spending government dollars.
I agree with you 100% !!!!
