Wanted to pass along this piece about a recent consumer report comparison between hybrid cars. It focused on price and at what point will the hybrid savings in gas actually equal the added sticker price of the car. Here’s the link:Hybrids vs. Nonhybrids: The 5-Year Equation By MATTHEW L. WALD. In an ideal world, we would all buy hybrids as a way to cut gas consumption, but the reality is that the economics matter for most people. The savings are important and will surely impact what people buy.
