Hybrid Vehicles Don

Con­sumers have start­ed to migrate back away from hybrids and small cars to SUVs and pick­ups as fuel prices have dropped and stayed rel­a­tive­ly low. Hybrid prices have dropped with the decreased demand. Increased fuel tax­es for 2011 and beyond promise to make cur­rent cheap gaso­line tem­po­rary.

Background
Demand for hybrid cars sky­rock­et­ed when gas prices topped $4/gal last sum­mer
New hybrids had wait­ing lists and sold for well above stick­er
Used hybrids were sell­ing for as much as a new hybrid’s stick­er price
