Gas Prices vs. What type of Car?


You now should be much more familiar with the cost savings you can achieve by driving a more gas-efficient vehicle.  You should also have a general understanding of the history of hybrid vehicles and gas prices.  The more miles you drive, the more important it is to be aware of how much you are spending on gas.  So, what car have you decided is right for you?
