This was posted today on a FARK thread about GM. The poster here was referring to the Volt:

"I like the concept of car that can, with no changes in lifestyle, take 2/3 or more of the money I give to people who hate this country and put it back in my pocket."

This is why I've changed my driving habits. I'm not in a position where I can change the number of miles I drive, so the least I can do is make every gallon go as far as possible, and keep that money in my pocket, rather than in the pockets of people that will use it against me. (That goes for terrorists and BP alike.)
