Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger may be a staunch supporter of increased fuel efficiency standards and weaning America off of its dependency on oil, but he did his campaign no favors last week after being spotted in a gas-guzzler Dodge Challenger.

The vehicle, which gets only 13mpg — and is a further symbol of Detroit’s out-of-touch mentality, is a throw-back to the Dodge Charger made famous by The Dukes of Hazard television show in the ’70s and ’80s.

Back in March, we reported on Schwarzenegger’s insistent use of a daily private jet to fly back and forth between Sacramento, CA to his mansion in Brentwood, CA. In a poll conducted then, 76% of you said that it was time for the governor to start walking the walk and reduce his own dependence on foreign oil.

Something tells us, he’s still not getting the message. Hopefully, that all-electric Tesla Roadster he’s got ordered will arrive sooner than later.
