Thursday letters: Why punish hybrid owners?

An owner of a hybrid automobile is not paying his or her fair share for roads (“Fuel-efficient cars cut into S.C. funds for road repairs,” Feb. 5)? It’s not the owner’s fault that the state chooses to pay for roads from gasoline taxes. The hybrid driver paid more for that car so that the air quality improves for everybody. I bicycle everywhere, so I guess the state should put a meter on my vehicle to punish me for not burning gasoline on the roads
