It's Boycott Time: GM Subsidizing Gas


Bob Lutz has another bright idea...

There used to be a game of writing short telegrams (Oscar Wilde to Publisher regarding book sales: "?" response "!"). David Roberts is starting the trend in blogging: his post today is simply "OMFG." And he nailed it. Generous Motors is now offering a subsidy on gas, capping prices for a year at $ 1.99 per gallon if you buy a full-size SUV in Florida or California. The Sierra Club notes "I have never heard of an addict getting off their addiction by having someone subsidize their fix". Time to declare GM free zones, the company is now as obnoxious as its Hummers. ::Chicago Tribune (requires onerous free registration) via ::Grist
