Electric Car Makes Driving a Bit Greener
With gas costing up to $3 a gallon lately and global warming on the minds of many, just about anyone with a gas-guzzler is looking for a way to cut back. When it comes to driving around town, one Lebanon family has been able to cut gas out completely.
Ed and Cathy Symonds bought an electric car in 2005 while Ed was in the Air Force in Guam. The 2005 General Electric Motorcars E2S cost him $10,000 at the time. He said it was perfectly suited for the limited distances on the island.
"It's got a 30-mile range and you only do 30 miles an hour," said Ed Symonds, an active-duty lieutenant colonel with the Air Force Communications Agency."Even when I was driving it as my primary work car in Guam, I never ran out of power in a day."
