Now all they need to do is raise the gas tax and maybe people will start thinking more about fuel efficiency and mass transit instead of driving around by themselves in 15 MPG vehicles.

.. and when all the gasoline is gone, we can all enjoy our single occupancy commutes on our bicycles in the HOV lanes.
Now there's a clean fuel vehicle! [;)]

Now that's a thought! Not only good for the environment but also good for the waist line.

In associated news, Chicago Board of Trade will open futures trading on ethanol derived from grain. April target date.

Farmers in Iowa are betting the farm to build ethanol digest plants.

Or is this a nefarious plot? Spike the price of oil. Entice investors into putting money into building ethanol production and then, just as ethanol turns the corner economically, dump the price of oil. Ethanol tanks (pun intended).

Investors in Iowa go bankrupt. Oil producers buy the plants at pennies on the dollar. Price of oil AND ethanol climbs as drive alones on Shirley Highway demand more fuel.

Will Congress recognize economic terrorism?

Did you forgot that you post this on a SLUG site? We SLUG rides from others...which will be you when they ban the hybrids. Look forward to the ride...

Check out these sites:

VirginiaGasPrices.com
WashingtonDCGasPrices.com

Looks like Fredericksburg and Stafford County consistently have the lowest gas prices in the state ($1.899 per gallon as of this writing).

Looks more likely that we will have to go to tolls when the exemption ends. Regular lanes are already too full, and at least some percentage of hybrid drivers will have to go to the regular lanes. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that HOV with unused capacity + regular lanes overloaded = some balance is needed. Removing hybrid exemption will result in tolls by 07. Duh.
