I don't think we're going to see gas get above $3/gallon here in the US for the foreseeable future due to increased production/supply and the (slowly starting) market shift towards renewable energy sources. Even if it did though, the gap in MPGs between cars and S/CUVs is less than it's ever been, even if the flat MPG difference hasn't changed much. With that, I'm glad FCA is trying to maximize profits on the back of S/CUV sales. I think it's been wise to not rush into the EV craze either as it would be a drag on capital (see Marchionne's comments on the 500e). Assuming FCA hits their financial targets, they should be in a good position to spend more resources on EV R&D and development. From some analysts I've read, that should allow FCA to have a true versatile EV ready for when the markets are predicted to start adopting EVs as a true alternative rather than a niche product.
