Who's getting rich off $4-a-gallon gas--and who's feeling the pain? This is a question that Forbes Magazine asked in their Special Investment Guide Issue that hit newstands this June. The article "Needed: A Plug-In Hummer" is an entertaining, yet serious look at the repurcussions of high gas prices. You know times are changing when Forbes gives a nod to the smaller, indpendent car companies like ZAP. The article shows a computer model of the ZAP Alias, an electric sports car being developed by ZAP, and taps ZAP as one of the WINNERS, saying the vehicles "...are looking sexier with every uptick in gas prices." Other winners? Plug-in hybrid kit makers. Losers? Plug-in hybrid kit buyers. Why? Pick up a copy while they're still on newsstands.
