Wheelbase Communications Half car/truck from Australia in the pipeline for North America: Remember the Chevrolet El Camino, basically a two-door Chevelle with a truck bed in place of a trunk and a rear seat? It seems that General Motors will sell a rebadged/reworked version of the Holden VE Commodore Ute in North America, which emulates the El Camino at least in spirit. GM is already planning to import 50,000 Commodore sedans, which will be North Americanized and sold here as the Pontiac G8. The new Pontiac trucklet will be named the G8 ST for Sport Truck and will only be available with the 6.1-liter V8, which is the G8 sedan’s optional engine.

Escalating gas prices are causing Lagunans, like many others, to change their driving habits and look for alternatives to gas-guzzling vehicles. Gas prices have increased $0.17 just within the past month at the Laguna Chevron. While the national average for regular gas has risen to $2.55 a gallon -- considered extremely high -- here in Laguna, $2.55 a gallon would be a bargain. In Laguna, drivers can pay anywhere from $2.75 to $2.95 for regular gas, $2.85 to $3.05 for unleaded and $2.95 to $3.15 for Supreme Unleaded.
