No gas! Boise man gets around in solar-powered car

John Weber is not feeling pain at the pump, because he hasn't bought gas for his vehicle in over a year.

Instead, he built his car to be powered by sunlight.

The car is one of only a handful of solar-powered cars in the Treasure Valley and can be charged using its solar panels, or by plugging it into a power source.
