NEW YORK ( CNBC) -- Strange how things have changed in the last four years. Back in 2008 when gas prices spiked above $4 a gallon, the demand for hybrids was so great dealers charged more than the MSRP for some models and had waiting lists of buyers more than willing to pay up for a gas-electric car. Compare that with the way people are looking at hybrids right now. Even as gas moves close to $4 a gallon demand for gas-electric cars is modest at best. There has been a clear change of heart when it comes to hybrids in the U.S.
