If you want to learn more about hybrids, or uh, at least Toyota’s take on hybrids, the company is on a “Highway to the Future” national tour to hook some more folks on their line of hybrid cars, talk about alternative fuels, and offer some ideas about reducing your carbon footprint. And as we learned this week, you can get them up to 100 miles per hour, if you’re into that sort of thing. Also, they’re quickly becoming the biggest status symbol on the block, for whatever that’s worth.

And for the other Brokeasses out there who fantasize about Priuses but know it’ll be a long time before we can afford one, you can even test-drive one — and Camry and Highlander hybrids, too.
