U.S. Fuel Economy Falls From Record High

Largely inspired by skyrocketing fuel prices, the U.S. has made great strides recently in terms of average fuel performance, an area where it has often been well below world averages. In fact, in August 2013, the average reached 24.9 miles per gallon

Ben is wrong. U.S. gas prices are actually less than half of Sweden's. See http://www.fuel-prices-europe.info/ where the current price per liter in Sweden is 1,631 (=$2.25 USD) while the price per liter in the U.S.A. is 0,664 (=$.92 USD). A liter is equal to 0.26417205 gallons, so multiply the liter price by 4 gives you a rough approximation for price per gallon.

Both my parents have Prius cars and they don't require much gas.
