Mr. Obvious Award

The Mr. Obvious Award this morning goes to Shawn Piatek of the Johnstown (Pennsylvania) Tribune-Democrat on his observations on local hybrid demand. I guess when you don’t carry a product, your sales of said product would be pretty close to zero:

At Suppes Ford, 101 Main St., downtown Johnstown, and Alvin’s Honda, 107 Bantley Place, Windber, demand for hybrids has been low and sales even lower.

Ford offers two models — the Escape and the Mercury Mariner — neither of which are even carried by Suppes.

In contrast, California is responsible for 1/3 of Toyota’s hybrid sales.
