    How can they take a $4000 golf cart and inflate the price to $40,000…..look for the Union/EPA label and the Central Planning Committee scores again.

      Lets not forget about 100′s of million’s of tax payer bailout dollars to research
      the golf cart !! Another stunning victory for NOBAMA 2012 !!!!

    Since electric also costs something, what you don’t spend on gas goes on your electric bill.(OOPS) Plus $40,000 for a car the size of a $14,000 car.

      OOPS, You forgot to subtract the $7500 that the US tax payer got the bill for on each car sold. That $7500 goes to Nissan leafs also.

    I don’t understand… Oil Companies chargeing more Money for Oil, to buy investments in Solor / Wind / Battery + other sorces of power. So they can raise the price of them too. They all ready have investments in our Markets / Reality/ All forms of Transportation. & Communication! While we loose our jobs to foreigners, here & abroad!
    And : We get to vote for the ones that are dooing it to us!

    There are many ways to understand ‘Economics 101.’ People, a doctorate in automotive engineering or economics is not necessary. The Volt is a piece of CRAP. It’s over-priced. Union members think the Volt is their own pet project.
    In comparison, a YUGO would probably be better than a Volt. A motorcycle with a sidecar would probably be better. A well-made bicycle would be good. If you have access to public transportation, use it.
    When I see our elected rejects driving nothing but Volts around DC, I’ll think about having one. Until then, they can jam it, cram it, shove it, slide it, stick it, sit on it or do anything they think feels good. Vaseline, anyone?
    And that is the end of your Economics 101 lesson.
