TULSA, OK -- PSO proved it's all about electricity on Tuesday, even when it come to cars.  The utility company converted two Toyota Priuses to plug-in to an outlet and run on lithium batteries and gasoline.           

The first one went into use on Tuesday in Tulsa.

It takes five hours to charge and a spokesperson for PSO says someone who drives 20 miles to and from work would only use about 50 cents worth of electricity.
