USA: Go green to save green? ‘That’s a big chunk of money’

EUGENE, Ore. – Kirk Gebb has car payments that might give you pause: $450 per month.

But for Gebb, the pay off is driving by all the gasoline pumps.

And as for rising fuel prices, Gebb says, “Bring it on.”

“It’s fine with me,” he said. “It just makes my averages look that more attractive.”

Gebb was one of the first people in Eugene to take delivery on a fully electric Nissan Leaf.

“I have no problem achieving 100 miles” per charge, he said, “and I’m by no means the most efficient driver.”

Electric vehicles and gas-electric hybrids are taking a larger share of the Oregon car market, with a little help from the taxman: Gebb said federal and state tax credits totaling $9,000 were a huge factor in his decision.
