This petition is being made so that owners of hybrid cars can get better tax refunds/breaks. They can currently get $2000 dollars in refund money, but it is not enough. People who buy hybrid cars already have to pay more than the owners of regular cars to own one. Hybrid cars cost $2000-$4000 more than regular cars of the same class. These people are making an attempt to save our environment, and they should be rewarded in some way for their actions. The main goal, however, is to get more people to buy these types of cars. And with better tax breaks/refunds, it\'s possible. Gases released from regular cars are ruining our environment. It\'s true that hybrid cars do still use gasoline, but half of the car is powered by electricity. Hybrid cars won\'t completely take away the need for gasoline, but it\'s a step in the right direction. If more people buy hybrid cars, the less our dependence on gasoline will be; and with the prices of gasoline lately, it will also be a benefit to every owner.
