With gas prices catching attention recently, many municipalities are investigating the purchase of alternative-fuel and hybrid vehicles in order to save fuel. For example, Massachusetts is considering a bipartisan bill that would offer $10M in grant money to local governments to purchase hybrid or alt-fuel vehicles, with a requirement that half the state's fleet must be alt-fuel-based by 2010. One thing is for sure - I highly doubt that a Prius will look as natural in MDOT orange as, say, a Ford Econoline. I'm also left wondering how many "Construction next 28 miles" signs one can fit into the hatch area of an Insight. I certainly don't think that a Ford Escape Hybrid will do a good job of clearing a snow storm.
