It only costs me 36 cents a day to recharge my Volt for the 26 mile round trip to work, so why bother!!!!!
Consumers Reports magazine asks car owners a simple qustion, "Would you buy this car again?" Volt has scored higher "Yes" votes than any other car sold in America for the past two years. The Porche 911 was second both years.

We're doing more drilling and producing more oil here than in many years. It still has been necessary to engage in continuous conflict in the Mideast for 20+ yrs to protect oil supplies. My main reason for buying a Volt was so no serviceman would need to die or be maimed to protect an oil supply for my car. I could get on ok if the oil supply goes to zero. My electricity comes from nuclear.
Please note that the Volt was developed, a decision made to take it into production, and the tax credit for purchase ALL happened during the Bush administration.
If my Volt battery loses range as it ages, I will burn somewhat more gas. On my 25.6 mile round trip commute, however, I would still be saving about 3/4 of a gallon/d after it lost 50% of range. Some have expressed the view however, however, that the battery will continue to have a useful life after the car has worn out.

Also, the gasoline generator runs about 20-25% of the time, mostly on road trips. When my Volt has 200,000 miles on it, the gasoline engine with have operated for 40-50,000 only.

Do you take tax deductions? Isn't that me supporting your decision to own a home, have kids, etc?

Well, I hope for $8/gallon gasoline!
