Falling Economy Forces People to Relocate

During the past few years, the consistent fall of economy has forced many people to relocate.  Some people have moved because they were forced to sell their houses, or lost them for that matter, and others just found better deals in other states.  Some have moved because their companies have moved to different states or were laid off and had to look for a job in other states.

Hybrid Cars

A hybrid car is a passenger vehicle that has a hybrid engine, which is any engine that combines two or more sources of power, generally gasoline and electricity. There are two types of gasoline-electric hybrid cars; the parallel hybrid, and the series hybrid. Both use gasoline-electric hybrid technology, but in radically different ways.

In a parallel hybrid car, a gasoline engine and an electric motor work together to move the car forward, while in a series hybrid, the gasoline engine either directly powers an electric motor that powers the vehicle, or charges batteries that will power the motor. Both types of hybrids also use a process called regenerative braking to store the kinetic energy generated by brake use in the batteries, which will in turn power the electric motor.

Both parallel and series hybrids have small gasoline engines, and produce much less pollution than standard gasoline cars, but also produce much less power. Hybrids generally produce between 60-90 horsepower, while the average gasoline engine probably produces about double that. To overcome this power gap, hybrid cars are constructed with ultra lightweight materials like carbon fiber or aluminum. Hybrid cars are also designed to be more aerodynamic than most cars, allowing them to “slice” through air instead of pushing it out of the way. All these factors combined equate to a super efficient form of car that gets excellent fuel economy and helps the environment by cutting down on pollution.

Hybrid cars, like the Toyota Prius produce 90% less pollutants than comparable non-hybrid cars. The United States government supports hybrid car ownership by allowing a tax write off. In 2005 the rebate was as high as $5000.
While it is true that hybrid cars do have expensive parts, they also have warranties that provide free replacement of the most expensive parts for many years.
Hybrid cars show much lower depreciation rates than standard gasoline cars. They are now and will continue to be in extremely high demand, so hybrid cars keep their values very well, making a hybrid car a sound investment.
Though hybrid cars have not been on the US market for very long, they have been sold in Japan since 1997. Some consumers worry that hybrid cars may not last as long as other cars, but it is not abnormal for a hybrid car to run like new when it has 250,000 miles on it. The best part – hybrid cars don’t require any more maintenance than gasoline cars.
Hybrid cars aren’t a fad. Nearly every major automobile manufacturer has announced either the launch of a hybrid car or plans for a launch.
