Although gas prices don't seem to go any direction but up, trucks continue to be among the best selling vehicles in the nation, despite their poor fuel efficiency. 

The reality is that even though trucks aren't the most efficient option, they offer an unmatched amount of rugged versatility and towing ability that allows Americans to get the job done, whether it's at a construction site or at their own homes.

Trucks like the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado and RAM 1500 are being snatched up at incredible rates. Click through to see the best selling trucks from February 2013 and see how that in spite of the seemingly constant rise in gasoline prices, there still isn't a replacement for the good old pickup.
