"...Is it possible that the oil companies are in league with GM, etc to make sure that your engines are as fuel inefficient as possible to keep sales up?..."

Nope. It's more about SUVs and pickup trucks. They are big. They get low mileage as a result.

GM used to make big bucks on them when oil was cheap. People like them less now that gas is expensive.
