    Theirs an article I've read before that says the taxi could reduce fleets fuel efficiency. It’s not our fault. It's Bloomberg's fault. Never fully trust government to assess a situation. Why is the government picking and choosing over vehicles that obviously won’t save money. We know ethanol is a scam. Yet they have thousands of E85 vehicles on subsidized fuel prices and then they claim they save fuel and money. They can save a lot of money by trading in all those Chevy Tahoe’s for Chevy Equinox’ or better yet drive a Focus or Ford Fusion. Stop buying Prius’s, They get 48 mpg highway; while a Ford Focus gets 40 mpg highway but is Seven-thousand dollars cheaper than the Prius. That much money will save enough gas to drive around the world over 2 times. On a cost per gallon of fuel or per mile basis, the Focus is better than the Prius. Yet only the hybrid lands you a 7,500 dollar tax credit. Trade in those Crown Vic's for Ford Focus or Ford Edge's.
