Houston County Going Hybrid

July 19, 2006

DOTHAN, AL – Houston County, Ala., officials say something has to be done about the high gas prices that are decreasing gas tax revenue, according to WTVY TV. According to County Commissioner Mark Culver, investing in hybrid cars could possibly fix the problem. The county has also looked into using other alternative fuels.“Fortunately, our sales taxes have continued to climb, so it offsets the decrease in gas, we’re not moving ahead as fast as sales taxes would indicate because we got to make up for that decline in gas taxes,” said Culver, as quoted in the WTVY TV report.
