"Go Green"Hybrid and flex fuel cars are blowing up. With the economy down and gas prices rising people have been leaning more toward hybrid. Hybrid cars run on less gas and use mainly electric power. When the car eventually runs out of electric power it switches over to gas. This is better for the environment because less fumes from your exhaust is let out which helps prevent the ozone layer from being damaged. If the ozone layer continues to be damaged it will increase global warming even more and dramatically effect the seasons and the weather.
Gas prices are rising out of control because the economy is in such bad condition. If more and more people decide to use hybrid it will save you so much money in the long run. Some people feel that because it is a hybrid car it may be very slow for those who have a need for speed. But many of these cars dont lack on horsepower. The new 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid has a 2.5 liter v6 and puts out close to 300 horsepower. Still this car gets 41 miles to the gallon which is the best for any sedan in its class. So for the people who think that hybrid is not worth it, you get almost the same horsepower and double the miles per gallon. If you are into saving money and helping out the environment hybrid is the best way to go.
