12 Cars With the Worst Fuel Efficiency

With fuel efficiency considered a national priority, media stories tend to naturally gravitate toward the cars with the best miles-per-gallon ratings. But low-mileage cars are still being built, and, in many cases, consumers are paying a premium for them.

Click on Bugatti's Veyron, the hands-down winner (loser?) in this contest, to start the slideshow.
