As the price of gasoline continues to rise, many of us are looking for ways to reduce our fuel costs by driving less.
At the same time, many consumers are becoming aware of the reasons why we as a society should burn less petroleum.
Where there's a will, there's a way. Where there's demand, there will be a supply.
And now there's a limousine company based in Santa Monica, Calif., that specializes in using environmentally-friendly vehicles. Fittingly, the company is called Eco-Limo and was founded four months ago.
Eco-Limo uses 2005 model Toyota Prius gasoline-electric hybrids and Chevrolet Suburbans than burn compressed natural gas. And they're all decked out in traditional limousine black and appointed like any other limousine.
So if you ever need a lift to the airport in Los Angeles -- or just want to go out on the town in style -- but still want to feel like you're making a difference, you can.
How many do you think will turn up at next year's Academy Awards?
