Are You Telling Me Its Not For The Environment? 

Steven Ginsberg and Carol Morello of the Washington Post report on why people are purchasing hybrid cars:

Several car dealers in Northern Virginia said it's because of the HOV exemption. "I'd say 95 percent of the people who buy a Prius say it's to get into HOV," said Jay Taye, sales manager at Ourisman Fairfax Toyota. "They talk about the tax break and the HOV, and once in a while they say they prefer it for the gas mileage as well."

I'm so disappointed.
