I think you are making an incorrect assumption that because I purchased American automobiles that I need to pay more money for fuel. Unfortunately that is the opinion that a lot of Americans have, and it is false. The GMC Canyon pickup trucks have higher fuel economy ratings than Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks do. And the GMC Sierra pickup trucks have higher fuel economy ratings that the Toyota Tundra pickup trucks do.
Because I own American vehicles does not mean that I spend any more on fuel than an average person does. The GMC Sierra is used to tow a fifth wheel trailer, and only gets used a few times a year. The Jeep is used infrequently as well. The Challenger is a collectors car, and is rarely driven to church on sundays, or to a car show. One of our GMC Canyon pickup trucks gets as much as 25 mpg highway, and the other routinely gets 27 mpg highway. So even with American vehicles in the garage, fuel cost are no worse than for most people.
