I agree with you Texas. If GM jacks the price by $7000, they will lose market share to Toyota. Toyota has the financial strength to run GM out of business. If tax credits change American piggish behavior and accelerates the adoption of PHEVs, it will be great for America and our blue gem, planet Earth.I support this credit. Firstly, it does allow GM to raise the price to cover the expensive, new and most importantly extremely useful technology. This is not a research grant that may or not pay off. It's directly covering the costs of technology that can help reduce our foreign oil imports by a significant amount. Every Volt on the road uses about 1/10 the gas of a normal car (assuming flex fuels are used). Seems like we are getting a lot of bang for the buck.
