Indulge me if you will.
You strange, haunting creature. I hear you've ordered a Yukon Hybrid as a gift to yourself for your 27th birthday. I totally respect your righteous effort. But a GMC Yukon Hybrid? Really? Um, why?
I love hybrids. Luv 'em. Prius, even Civic. 60 mpg city driving. But the Yukon gets, what, 20 mpg city driving? Hey, why not. That's up about 20 mpg from what it was.
But what does that do for the environment? For our foreign oil dependency? For your wallet? Scratch that. Were you perhaps misguidedly trying to support that great pillar of American ingenuity General Motors? The company that smashed their successful EV1 electric car (Literally. Rent Who Killed the Electric Car? in favor of the ridiculous gas-guzzling Hummer? Why not just buy a regular SUV and say you'll only drive it half as much? I don't get it. I can't figure it out, Paris. You mystify me.
