If gas is still around $3/gal or higher when the new Camaro debuts, how will it affect your buying decision?

I fear the more pessimistic question is will GM still try to make it if gas prices are this high in 3 years. Remember that high gas prices were one of the major reasons they started detuning and fazing out the muscle cars back in the 70's. Also, you can't forget that Pres. Bush is looking to get approval to increase the CAFE requirements accross the entire fleet, not just the trucks like he did a couple of months ago. I worry that a combination of public sentiment, government regulation and ugly economic realities may make the Camaro revival seem less viable to the corporate bean counters...

Just my .02 worth.

I'm hoping with DOD and other improvements this camaro will provide not only outstanding power, but also outstanding economy.

i don't care about fuel economy when it comes to a vehicle like the camaro. by the time its out, i should be able to afford a reliable DD and have a fun car for weekends and trips. i would like good mileage in the camaro, but im not worried. with the technology out there, decent mileage and power can go hand in hand. i just don't want them to make it impossible to mod cause of things like DOD
