How much is Townhall.com being paid by the oil companies? These hit pieces on the Volt our so patently false and misleading to boggle the mind. The Volt does NOT costs $90 k to build. GM is NOT losing ANY money on each Volt they are building. The Volt can go as far as any other car. A sample of 1600+ Volts have driven over 14 million miles 10 million on electric only, averaging 137 mpg. You want to have energy independence with your 12.5 mpg SUV? As Bill Clinton said do the ARITHMETIC! How can someone call themself a Patriot and be so rabid against an American company, building a car in America that can primarily run on 100% American made energy.
