Hybrids overtake Hummers.... no contest.
http://www.northwestwatch.org/publications/CS_news_1_05...

Among Northwest jurisdictions, Washington has the most hybrids, with 6,200. It also has the most Hummers, with 1,100. Oregon has 3,600 hybrids and fewer than 500 Hummers. British Columbia has more than 600 hybrids and fewer than 300 Hummers. In proportional terms, that means Oregon has the most favorable hybrid-to-Hummer ratio, with almost eight times as many hybrids as Hummers, while British Columbia has the worst ratio, with a bit more than twice as many hybrids as Hummers.

1. I'm one of the 6,200 in Washington.

I own a Honda Civic Hybrid and I love my gas mpg and there is lots of zip in that little engine.

2. Hybrid questions
What's the normal battery life for a hybrid and how much do replacement batteries cost?

3. That's because the NW is the most progressive
part of the country... you are lucky to live there!
