Oh no! Not my Prius
Picture the Edmonds ecos exclaiming “wealthy Republicans are destroying the planet!” when they find their Prius driving next to a ‘one per-center’ in a BMW.
Per the EPA, the Toyota Prius ( 2012 ) generates 190 grams (g) of tailpipe CO2 emissions per mile driven (98020.)
Try the Atlanta zip of 30303 for your 2012 Prius - 220 g per mile driven.
Meanwhile the 2012 Honda Civic = 278 g per mile, 2013 Chevrolet Cruze = 293 g per mile and 2013 BMW 320i = 320 g per mile.

Now, picture these same greenies consuming energy in order to produce the wealth that is taxed and those taxes then given to subsidize the vehicles price.
Add the CO2 emitted to actually produce the Prius (about twice vs the Civic.)
It's a good thing that CO2 is a trace gas, vital for life on this planet and "agenda" free. Unlike the Edmonds ecos.
