Prius With a Gun Rack

ok, so the title here is a bit of a bait and switch, as I did not actually see a Prius with a gun rack, but one of the things I have noticed during this trip is that there are a ton of Priuses (plural of Prius? Possibly Prii?) out in rural Washington, Idaho, and Montana. Second to pickup trucks, this is much of what you see. My original theory was that Washington state, being a fairly "green" place, had some sort of tax incentive to buy them, and that's why we were seeing them all over. But the Priuses have persisted even into Montana, so I am stumped...

Is the Northwest so "green" that even the rural folk buy Priuses? Is there a multi-state tax incentive? Are they useful for farm work in some unknown way?
