The U.S. government will buy up to 10K hybrids to help trim fuel costs for the fleet of government cars. The marching orders come from the GSA which estimates savings of close to 1M gallons of fuel over the lifetime of the vehicles. The agency didn't say which manufacturer it will buy the vehicles from, although presumably General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) will receive some home field advantage.
