CORRECTION
Last week we reported that in order to encourage more responsible use of our resources, the Bush administration will be phasing out the $25,000 tax write-off for purchasing a Hummer, which gets 10-12 miles per gallon, while leaving in place the $2,000 tax credit for buying a hybrid vehicle, which gets over 50 mpg. In fact, the Bush administration is phasing out the $2,000 credit for buying a hybrid, while leaving in place the $25,000 write-off for buying a Hummer. We regret the error.
