State hybrid rebate funds running out of juice

Last March the state of Pennsylvania implemented a rebate program for those who purchased hybrid electric vehicles. The program has been so successful that the state expects the allocated funds of $1.5 million to be exhausted in April.
But Pennsylvania isn't sweating it. Another $1 million has been allocated to the program, which will become available in July.

Said Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Kathleen McGinty, "Demand for these rebates clearly shows the public is interested in vehicles that achieve higher fuel efficiency standards and employ alternative fuel technologies. With each of us demanding low-emissions cars that get better gas mileage, we can lessen our dependence on foreign oil and improve the environment at the same time. I am grateful that Pennsylvania can offer this rebate program again in July."
