Offsetting the Trade Deficit: Sequoias to Saudi Arabia

The following fits into the category of "They Have Cheap Fuel". People in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and other Middle East counties will soon have a chance to buy Indiana-built Toyota Sequoia sport utility vehicles. Toyota says it will export around 15,000 Sequoias from the U.S. to the Middle East next year. Also, about 1,000 Tundra pickup trucks built in Texas and some 150 Sequoias will be sent to several markets in Latin America. While this is the first time the Sequoia and Tundra have been exported from the United States, Toyota first sent American-made vehicles to other countries in 1988.
