That's a lot of payola.

For one, plug-in hybrids are going to be rare, so the dealers will likely mark up the units and offset the credit.

I'd rather wait for the Prius plug-in instead of the Volt -- I just don't trust GM with new technology (I did that with the '90 Quad-4 and we know how that went).

For me, if there's a huge credit, which might offset the depreciation just enough to buy a new vehicle (providing sticker or lower can be negotiated), I'd seriously consider it.

Then again, who's paying for it? All of us US taxpayers. It's almost like we have to do it...
