It’s meh, but it’s better than Barack Obama’s plan.  I don’t think the big car companies need tax incentives to get Detroit making hybrid and electric cars.  They seem to be putting their own money into hybrid and electric.  Plus, that would give them an unfair advantage over other companies working on hybrid and electric technologies.  Tesla Motors and Aptera Motors are based out of California.

Inflate your tires: *EDIT: Other video is no longer available.  This one is good too though.* “Making sure your tires are inflated… we could save all the oil they’re talking about getting off drilling if everyone was just inflating their tires?  And getting regular tuneups?  You could save just as much.”  Riiiiight….
