Is your goal to destroy the world? To destroy the environment that is here on this pure and blue world? While at the same time saving money on gasoline? If it is then you’re in luck, because there just happens to be a hybrid vehicle at your local dealership, and these hybrid vehicles will destroy the world, devastate the environment, and all the while saving you some money on gasoline.
