Hybrid Cars... get one

I want a hybrid car.... preferably one that's a convertable.. this link here is an article about how the popularity of hybrid cars is soaring now that gas prices are at an all-time high. Moreover, Ford just came out with a new type of Hybrid car with all sorts of nifty new features:

[T]he Escape hybrid is rated at 31 miles per gallon on the highway and 36 in the city. "It's a great car for in the city," [Ford sales consultant] said, "It's all electric until you get over 25 mph. That's when the gas engine kicks in." He said hybrids require no more maintenance than regular cars. "You never have to recharge this battery," he said. "If you're coasting or braking, it's basically recharging itself."
I think that's pretty neato, I can't wait until these things really catch on. The oil companies will have a fit. In other news, Haliburton is the devil.
