Thinking About Going Hybrid?

Extreme Gas Prices

This day in age, when the price of gas is so crucial to the status of a driver’s budget, it is vital to do some research on Fuel Economy statistics before considering¬† which new car to purchase. A great place to begin your studies is at the online site of the Environmental Protection Agency, where a list of 2009 modeled cars (divided by class) with the highest fuel economies was recently published.

Among the winners in the many vehicle categories/classes listed, there are a few that I would like to address that are relevant to us, as a hybrid community. First is the Toyota Prius, taking the prize for Highest Fuel Economy-Midsized Car boasting an average of 48MPG on city streets. Another winner that hits close to home was the Honda Civic Hybrid, taking the cake for Highest Fuel Economy-Compact Car. Among the other winners were the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda Tribute Hybrid, Mercury Mariner Hybrid, and Chevy Silverado Hybrid. These category winners left little room for comparison amongst hybrid and non-hybrid vehicles in regards to fuel economy records.

The diffence in amount of money saved on gas between hybrid and non-hybrid vehicles is astronomical. In these rough economic times, every saved dime matters. Think about it. Though it may seem extreme-a few dollars saved each time you are at the gas pump adds up to a lot of dollars saved weekly, monthly, and especially annually. Therefore, the EPA’s list of Highest Fuel Economy Cars (2009 Models) should help make your decision making a little bit easier After all, who doesn’t want to save a few dimes every now and then?Extreme Gas Prices
