Prof. Emeritus Michael Kraft’s recent column on hybrid vehicles appeared in newspapers from Massachusetts to California during the weekend and into this week, calling attention to the cars as high gas prices continue to make headlines. Kraft’s column explores the consumer, environmental and public policy implications of hybrid vehicles, considering both the short-term costs and benefits as well as the long-term potential of the technology. Hybrids have made significant gains in terms of efficiency, and those changes will be even more impressive during the next decade, Kraft says. Read column.
