Toyota Dealerships in US Facing Shortage of Prius Hybrids

Toyota(TOKYO) -- As Japan wrestles with its radiation and earthquake problems, half a world away, U.S. car dealers are wrestling with another problem.

Hybrids remain in high demand, especially with the recent rise in gas prices, but some dealerships are running out of inventory.

Some Toyota showrooms in the country don't have any more models of its hybrid, the Prius, left in stock.  The Japanese automaker will not be able to restock its supply until full production of the vehicles can resume in Japan.
