No, this isn't a Breast Cancer awareness post, nor am I trying to get you to look at the Victoria Secret Catalogue. (recently mailed to my house oddly enough)
The Tata is the new car manufactured in India which is to have a target price of $2000 (1 Lakh). If this car does meet this price point it will become a very affordable automobile for bazillions of average Indians.
If this becomes the new 'Volkwagen' of India it will be the one-and-only cause for the $5.00/gallon of gas in the United States. Get ready for it.
Oh and by the way...gold hit $880 yesterday. How are those dollars doing?
UPDATE - A clarification on this post. As for the TATA raising gas prices. India is an emerging world economy with a huge population. If the TATA becomes a car that the average person in India can afford, this will force India's demand to new heights that will be out of this world. The increased global demand will force oil prices up in the United States.
The reason for the update was that I received a few emails telling me that people in the United States would not buy a TATA and I fully agree though that wasn't the point I was attempting to make.
