My Prius is expensive, underpowered and not really all that green….

but we got Free Parking…

Los Angeles Yanks Plug on Free Parking for Electric Cars

That was a huge reason why I bought the car in the first place,” says the 35-year-old Santa Monica, Calif., postproduction company executive, whose car qualifies for free parking for up to a month at a time in two of LAX’s most convenient—and costly—short-term lots.

Other than that, he says his ride is “expensive, underpowered and not really all that green,” because it can run just 12 miles on electricity before switching to gas…”

John Anthony DiCiaccio, a 37-year-old engineer for Southwest Airlines who bought a plug-in Toyota Prius partly because of the parking incentive, was distraught this week to read the flier left on his car warning that the free parking would be coming to an end.

He says he’s still hopeful the airport could reverse course. “I know in my mind that this can’t last forever, but I’m just crossing my fingers.”

Liberals are so cute…hope springs eternal

And here we thought the idea was all about saving the planet…

If electric-vehicle drivers were to completely fill both lots that are free to them, the airport could lose $120,000 a day, totaling $44 million a year.
