How about "Cash for Car Sharing"?

Cash for Clunkers addendum: the Dept of Transportation estimates an average increased fuel efficiency of 15.8mpg to 25.4mpg so far. See sidebar figures in today’s NY Times coverage. Forget about the funding debate for a sec. How about “cash for car sharing”?

Or really push the envelope and require folks to buy plug-ins, hybrids and, when feasible, EVs like the Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt. 25mpg? Meh. It’s anemic compared to the new Prius and InSight, excellent vehicles that double that figure and are already mass produced.

    B.Clinton was in Chicago today and he actually said the same thing as you about how they should do a trade-in for electric or hybrid cars.

    I'm pretty sure he was reading this post before he went on stage 🙂
