$8 Gasoline and the Yukon

Chris Farrell Jul 7, 2008

I got a call from a financial advisor this morning, and he had seen a calculation that with zero percent interest financing and all the price cuts/discounts being put on the Yukon, gasoline would have to hit $8 a gallon before the SUV became uneconomic. If he’s right, that’s a stunning number.
