Hybrid Cabs, Parking and Saving Money

San Francisco is getting some hybrid taxis. Green Cab opens up with five hybrid taxis for those who want to get around town while emitting less. The new cab company will be using Honda Civic Hybrids and will be easy to spot with their green checkers.

The new owners estimate they will be paying $8 a day in fuel costs, as opposed to the normal $45.

Hybrid taxis
are available in much larger numbers in New York City, but maybe this is is how they are going to start spreading out into more major cities now that they've been road tested in NYC.

Cars.com noticed out in Chicago, Home Depot has come up with its own incentive for hybrid cars. Close-up parking is now available for those who drive alternative fueled vehicles (as long as those large contractor trucks don't use them as a free parking spot -- read the story at cars.com).

And in case you were wondering, you can save money buying a hybrid even sooner than you think. According to this article in the Wall Street Journal, you can break even in as little as a year! After that, its all savings.

The incentives being offered by Toyota on their hybrids lately has upped the ante, making the premium you pay for a hybrid as little as sixteen hundred dollars over a conventional gas only vehicle. That means you need less time to make up the difference. It also doesn't hurt when you look at current gas prices.
