The Prius pays off

leave a comment »

When The Wife was getting a new car I campaigned strongly for the Prius, because I thought that Peak Oil was near. This was almost 4 years ago. Now, with gas prices surging (I saw regular at $4.50/gal. yesterday), it’s clear that the Prius was the best choice. Details here give cost of ownership over a three-year period, via Lifehacker. But the key is shown below—cars, left to right, are Prius, Accord, and Civic, and the mileage estimates are the revised, combined EPA estimates from fueleconomy.gov.
