More Alternative Fuel State Vehicles for Florida

Just as I'm enjoying the fact that the State is developing a bid criteria for the upcoming year's State Rental Car Contract that will incorporate factors for the best possible energy efficiency and environmental performance, and just when (if I reserve early enough) I can rent a Prius from Avis for only approximately $4.00 per day more (a little more than the cost of one gallon of gas these days), one of my co-workers comes up to me and asks about hybrids.

"Don't they take a different kind of gas? We shouldn't be renting these kind of cars until we can find out what kind of fuel to put in them."

Yes, it's true, green readers, we still have a very lot of educatin' to do. . .
