For the 2006 model year, the state of Washington purchased 222 Toyota Prius cars compared to 218 gas-only models. The state also picked up some Ford Escape Hybrids and 390 flex-fuel vehicles. The state apparently gets a good deal on the Prius, paying about $2,000 below sticker. Does the state also get the IRS deduction?

So if you're wondering why you've been stuck on the waiting list for a Prius, blame Washington .
