Chevy Volt Pricing Announced

The heavily-hyped Volt will cost $41,000. Subtract from that the federal tax credit of $7,500 and the actual price will be $33,500. This is interesting from the prospective of getting most of the way off the oil teat. I say "most of the way" because it still eats electricity, and has a four cylinder motor that kicks in any time you drain the batteries by traveling more than 40 miles. Still, I imagine it is still an improvement since most people commute less than 40 miles, meaning they would use no gasoline whatsoever.

All comments on this blog are moderated, meaning they don't appear until approved by me. So, when your comment doesn't appear immediately, *DO NOT* throw a hissy-fit and assume I'm refusing negative comments (yes, it really happened). I approve pretty much everything that isn't obvious SPAM, negative or not, and I promise you that will include your hissy-fit comments, accusing me of a grand conspiracy to squash dissenting ideas (also really happened). The result, of course, being that you will look like a fool, and the rest of us will laugh heartily at your stupidity.
