Newsflash: Batteries Are Expensive

To all of you who've considered getting hype-rids (oops, make that "hybrids"), please be sure to check this out:

... while battery technology has traveled far from the big clunkers in the late 1990s, the costs and limits of current batteries remain the biggest obstacles to mass marketing plug-in vehicles. Although nearly every major auto company is moving ahead with electric car plans, the batteries still cost about $8,000 or more each, experts estimate, and that could make electric cars money-losers. Moreover, electric carmakers warn, the industry's manufacturing capacity is limited, and few factories are in the United States.

No matter how much environmentalists may try, they still can't seem to defeat Newton's Dastardly Laws Of Physics.

Funny, that.
