    Current price of gas in your area?

    Hit the gas station this morning here on the Island, and, it went up to $2.31/gallon from $2.21 of last week? What is going on now??!?!? What is gas running in your local areas? Gosh, I do hope we don't skyrocket back over three bucks a gallon with summer time coming again! :(

    who cares if the price of gas fluctuates 10 cents when you went to the car dealership and decided to buy a monster mobile that gobbles 14 mpg

    Did you hear the reports on the new hybrids? They're not as efficient as they led people to believe........ I'd be real annoyed if I had bought one of them for the efficiency reason!

    BTW Costco was 2.47 on Tuesday......

    Prec, its not only that theyre not so efficient, its that you have to own it for SO long before you even begin to recoup the extra money spent for the hybrid. The efficiency thing is true in ALL new cars. The hwy/cty mpg ratings were developed in the 60s and 70s and arent accurate anymore. There is a movement to get them revised. Plus one of the benefits of hybrids is emissions. Using the gasoline only half of the time (just for arguments sake) would make the emissions half as well.

    If one is not paying for gasoline, one is paying for the hook up to electricity. Get you coming and going. The EPA has a summit meeting coming up in May to work on the revisions, and they will be reflected for the 2009 cars, not this years models.

    What we need is for the citizens to vote out those in government who don't care about our animals, our water, and our children's future and inisist on a revision in the EPA's structure, protocols and standards. IMHO Yeah, Rags could be classified as a "John Denver Tree Hugger" on a number of levels!

    As with most new products, the price of new technology will eventually drop over time, eg, flat screen monitors and TV's. This will eventually make hybrid cars or other alternative cars a financially feasible choice when there is popular adoption of the technology and it is no longer classified as alternative.

    Factoring in:

    1. a current tax credit of up to $2600 on a new vehicle (when you calculate the price of the car, you just slash this amount off the sticker price, like a rebate),

    2. longer cruising range, few times at the pump,

    3. rising gas prices (the dream of having gas prices at $1.50 is over; the higher the gas prices, the faster you will recover the premium you paid for your alternative vehicle),

    4. reduction in oil dependence from "terrorist" countries (which would eventually change our political agenda because we currently have to cower to these countries and make asses out of ourselves in the process),

    5. and up to 50% cut in vehicle emissions from hybrids (yes, your children and grandchildren have to grow up in the environment you leave them with),

    this is the only logical direction there is right now. The only arguments against all this is money, money, and money. What is your priority?
