Year of the green car
This column has previously recommended visiting the Green Car Reports website (www.greencarreports.com) to help when purchasing a “green” car. But in 2013, there will be so many fuel-efficient vehicles for sale, people will likely need another website: www.fueleconomy.gov. It's the U.S. Department of Energy's site, and thus, the official U.S. government source for fuel-economy information. It's also a great resource for prospective car buyers of any kind. There, consumers can compare the latest hybrid models, electric vehicles and other cars; search for ways to save fuel and money; and read the latest news about fuel economy.
