Kentucky by the numbers: 38

Lexington ranked 38th in a survey by earlier this year that assessed the level of research that car shoppers in each of 210 cities did into hybrid vehicles. The "greenest city," according to the survey, was the San Francisco metropolitan area.

Lexington ranked above other regional cities Evansville, Ind. (61), Cincinnati (64), Louisville (108), Paducah and surrounding areas (148), and Bowling Green (161).
