Shopping for a "green car"? Not in Laredo!

Sube la ventana!!

I don't know if the pollsters who compiled this survey took into acount the many pollution-free yonkas in the Gateway City but perhaps they should have.  Without yonkeros such as Keyrose being counted towards Laredo's greenness, we were bound to make the top (bottom) ten again.

 This time Laredo is ranked towards the bottom when it comes to green-friendly car buyers. Obviously, the pollsters also forgot to count the many homeless who opt for the greenest of green: the old, discarded shopping cart. Now that's recycling and reducing air emissions both in one.


The Chico-Redding area has some of the most eco-friendly car shoppers in the country, reported this month. Chico-Redding placed ninth on the green car shopping list.

Topping the list of green scar shoppers was San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose.
The San Francisco Bay Area was followed by Madison, Wis.; Monterey-Salinas; Portland, Ore.; San Diego; Green Bay-Appleton, Wis.; Santa Maria-Santa Barbara-San Luis Obispo; Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto; Chico-Redding; and Zanesville, Ohio. tapped into its search data from its visitors. Based on their searches on vehicles that get more than 40 mpg, the results were tabulated.

The 10 communities with the fewest green car shoppers were Odessa-Midland, Texas; Laredo, Texas; Fairbanks, Alaska; Albany, G.; Bluefield-Beckley-Oakhill, Va.-W.V.; Glendive, Mont.; and Helena, Montana.
