If you are even considering an SUV with gas prices right now you may as well at least do a little research to find something that gets more than 11 MPG. I know an SUV is needed at times to chug a family around, or a place to store 4 golf bags when you sneak out of the house on the weekends so let's take a looks at some of the better values out there.
Stas for these vehicles are available at Cars.com. Not only do they give you the standard MPG info, but they are also compared based upon lifetime fuel cost based on 15,000 miles driven per year. #1 is the Jeep Patriot.
