NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

THE White House plans to buy only hy­brids, plug-in hy­brids and elec­tric ve­hi­cles for US gov­ern­ment fleets by 2015. The an­nounce­ment was made by Pres­i­dent Barack Obama this week. He said: ‘‘We can­not keep go­ing from shock to trance on the is­sue of en­ergy se­cu­rity, rush­ing to pro­pose ac­tion when gas prices rise, then hit­ting the snooze but­ton when they fall again.’’ The US Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment has a fleet of about 600,000 ve­hi­cles.
