With the cost of gasoline at about $4 a gallon in most of the U.S., fuel efficiency is a buzzword for the auto industry. Each year, manufacturers expand their fuel-efficient product lines, giving consumers more options to help save money at the pump without sacrificing vehicle preference.

Recently NADAguides, a publisher for vehicle pricing, came out with its annual list of the most fuel-efficient vehicles of 2011. The data are based on combined miles per gallon (MPG) and the average rate of city and highway’s MPG.

Each vehicle segment offers models that achieve at least 23 or more combined MPG, including the (traditionally gas-guzzling) SUV and crossover segments.
