Chrysler announced a month-long "Let's Refuel America" program that will give buyers of most of its vehicles a card good for purchases of gasoline or diesel fuel that locks in the price at $2.99 a gallon for three years.

The total amount of fuel that can be bought at the locked-in price will be computed on the basis of the new vehicle's federal miles-per-gallon rating and 12,000 miles of driving a year. The card is good for purchases of 87-octane regular gasoline, E85 gas-ethanol blend or diesel fuel....

It covers a wide variety of models, ranging from compacts such as the Dodge Caliber to large SUVs such as the Jeep Commander.
Why, oh why, could they not apply this discount card to their fuel-efficient models to encourage their purchase?

The Calibre (Caliber?) gets in the neighborhood of 30 mpg.  Not good enough?

I don't play golf anymore.   Well, maybe I do sort of.  I quit keeping score, started drinkning beer and I started playing better.

No, I meant as in NOT apply it to their gas-guzzlers.  Assuming the average buyer plans to own a car more than three years, this card just delays pain the same way a five-year ARM does.  Stupid.

The consumers must not want them too badly, if Chrysler is seeing sales plummet as reported and has to offer this gimmick (along with thousands in cash back!).

The money saved will go toward the local dealer fixing your $2.99/gal POS.
