As Dan Carney of MSNBC.com points out, Americans have had a tendency to supersize everything, from their food to the vehicles they drive. However, with the rising prices of gasoline, more Americans have decided to downsize their vehicles. And the sales of smaller vehicles reflect this change. Honda, for example, reported the most Civic sales ever during the month of May. But for some Americans, the thought of going to a smaller car is an uncomfortable feeling, fearing they are giving up safety for better fuel economy.
