Tax hybrids? You've got to be kidding

A report from the feds suggests taxing hybrids because they use less gas, and therefore, pay less fuel tax.

This has to be the single most stupid thing I've ever heard in my life. Why the hell would you undermine the one trend that will in the long term reduce oil consumption? Wouldn't it make more sense to stick it to the people buying giant 8-cylinder vehicles they use to take the kids to soccer practice?

The stupidity in some people never ceases to amaze me.

If anything, they should get a tax break.

The amount of stupidity around cars never ceases to amaze me.

I recommend the excellent film "The End of Suburbia" for a frightning discussion of what our car and oil dependent culture and economy is headed toward.
