No school at all this week so we turn our attention to the news of the absurd:
If you thought you were going to save money and the planet earth by buying a electric, hybrid or a non-petroleum powered car, think again. While you might save a little piece the planet, you’re not going to save money if the Fed has its way.
From the U.S. Chamber of Congress on Future Highway and Public Transportation Financing:
“…To ensure adequate federal transportation revenues beyond 2015, the federal government can supplement current federal motor fuel taxes with an annual federal vehicle tax on hybrid and non-petroleum powered vehicles so that all passenger vehicles pay their fair share of highway use costs…”
Time to go trade in the Prius for that new Hummer and save on taxes!
