The U.S. Transportation Secretary Unveils New Fuel-Economy Window Stickers . . . And Arrives in a Chevy Suburban

Here's an all-time CLASSIC "do as I say, not as I do" moment from Ray LaHood, the U.S. Transportation Secretary.

Yesterday, LaHood was at an event where he unveiled new window stickers that dealers will have to put on cars and trucks to show their gas mileage, fuel costs over five years, and pollution ratings.

He announced, quote, "We're not just sitting around waiting for high gasoline prices to come down."

And LaHood was driven to the event in . . . a Chevy Suburban SUV. Which gets 12 miles to the gallon.
