I don’t have many options where I live. It’s Shell or grocery-store gas unless I go out of my way.

The last paragraph: similar regional models consolidated into single models.
Hmm. Are they talking about the Fit/Jazz type of thing, or are they hinting the Accord might combine with the JDM City or go away? The Accord is only sold in North America and Japan now, I think.
