Obama administration wants to add 10,000 hybrids to government's fleet

The U.S. government manages a huge fleet vehicles, mostly through the General Service Administration (GSA) which oversee 210,000 vehicles directly. This is a huge opportunity for the government to lead by example and to use its purchasing power to support promising technologies. Back in the spring of 2011, in an effort to bring down costs and reduce the federal fleet's environmental footprint, president Obama ordered federal agencies to give up full sized SUVs and sedans unless "absolutely necessary". The federal government has now announced that it wants federal agencies to increase the number of hybrids in their fleets by about 10,000. That would mean doubling the current 10,672 hybrids that they already have, though hopefully more of the new ones will be much more fuel-efficient plug-in hybrids.
