Are Hybrid Vehicles the Answer to Rising Energy Prices?

An increasingly sad state of the earth makes a lot of parties have to come to work hard to ‘cure’ the disease of global warming. Depends on the expertise, the entire population of earth-conscious environment will be doing his best to improve the environment of diminishing. If plants lovers or farmers trying to streamline the narrow land that can still be filled with plants that are reducing emissions, then the car companies around the world trying to create a low-emission vehicles as well as providing a way out to use fuel other than gasoline.
