The search for a green rental car

Goodness, what a headache it was trying to book a reasonably-priced hybrid car!

My sisters Lani, Lynn and I are heading to Vegas next week for a whole lotta driving to and from Utah. (Yep, I've been there before with my husband back in 2006.) So a hybrid car makes sense, right? But I came across Prius rates about $300+. Whoa! I ended up with Hertz's Green Collection that gave me a Toyota Corolla. But how fuel-efficient can it be if it's 28+ mpg? Perhaps I should've simply booked any good ol' car.

Now if only someone would make it easier for people like me to rent hybrids, then people wouldn't immediately just go for the cheapest car rental.
