Here is part of the Mayor's column.

"In addition, I joined mayors from across the country in a national effort to support the National Plug-in Hybrid Campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to demonstrate to automobile manufacturers that there is a market for flexible-fuel plug-in hybrid vehicles.

These vehicles take currently available gasoline-hybrid vehicles to the next level, allowing drivers to plug them in for a few hours to charge the batteries and then drive emissions free solely on electric power for 35-60 miles. The cost of charging the battery of a PHEV is estimated to be just 50-75 cents per gallon equivalent. Since most drivers travel short distances throughout our city, this new technology could significantly reduce local air emissions and save residents money."
