Would you pay an extra $0.30 per gallon for American gas?
We don't verify other products are "Made in America" before we buy them, why would we care about gas?
people don't do that. My wife's family is big on it.
If an American product is better, I'll buy it. If it's not, I won't. There's got to be motivation for America to make better products and that motivation comes from competition abroad. Not only that, but half the products made here have components made elsewhere anyway. GMC is an American company right? Why do they build trucks in Mexico, then? Honda is Japanese, right? A majority of Hondas sold in this country are made in America by Americans.
If someone tells me they try to buy nothing but American, my first thought is that they're naive. I personally feel the company that makes the best product for the price deserves my business, regardless of nationality or race.
