Getting A Hybrid – Are You Really Saving The Environment?

Remember last year when gas reached $5 a gallon? It was a nightmare every time you had to go to the gas station. And, every time you saw someone driving a hybrid on the road you got a little bit jealous because they were definitely not filling up their car with gas as much as you were.

This is one of the reasons they do not need to refuel as often as other cars. Besides refueling, one thing that people often wonder is, are these so called “green” cars really as environmentally friendly as they claim? According to studies, it seems that the hybrids eco-friendly claims are founded.

Hybrid cars are more economical than other cars because they consume 50 to 60 percent less fuel. Also, the gas in a hybrid vehicle is burnt at such a low level that it produces a lower toxic emission than those produce by other vehicles.

The hybrid vehicles release less carbon dioxide and cause less pollution than regular cars. The only downside to these vehicles is that they are a little bit pricier. However, the government does over a tax break for being friendly to our environment. If you haven’t driven one, test-drive your favorite hybrid today!
