Cash for Clunkers

On NPR, they were talking about the whole cash for clunkers doo-hickey wherein you can get 4,500 towards the purchase of a new vehicle if you give up your gas guzzling old vehicle.

The idea sounds nice.

Except the ONE John Q Public they interviewed mentioned he turned in his crappy car, got $4,500 to purchase the new Ford F150. For serious? There isn't one variation of the F150 that gets more than 20 mpg. City mileage is, on average, 14 mpg.

How is that helping?
