Hybrid costs in Ohio

Not a question but an observation from Mr. Magliozzi’s column on the pay back time for an hybrid. In Ohio there is an additional annual fee of $100 for car registration. Over 25 other states alos have additional fees on hybrids and electric cars. In his example with the Ohio fee it would take 6 years to break even. However, no matter the break even time, our grandchildren will thank us for slower climate change.

I suspect Ohio is making up for the tax loss caused by reduced gas sales. Regardless, I agree about future generations.
