Hybrid Cars Save On Gas

by Chris Cato

Many Americans are concerned about outrageous gas prices across the US.

Fuel efficient gas-electric hybrid vehicles have now been on the market for a few years. We spoke with the owner of one of these hybrids right here in East Texas. We wanted to find out what she thinks about these half gas/half electric automobiles.

She says she now is only spending about $15 a month on gas so she thinks her hybrid vehicle is well worth it.

Mary Jo Gorden, a hybrid owner said, "it's fun to drive. That's the thing I think a lot of people think you have to plug it in or something but it just recharges itself. When your driving it recharges so you don't do anything."

The only problem Mary has had so far happened at the car wash. Workers had to ask her to drive the car out because they couldn't figure out how to do it.

Mary says a hybrid vehicle is a little different, but after you get used to it, it works great.
