^Well the Insight that got higher mileage than the Prius is manual (and not to mention it's a 2-door to start). :D

If fuel prices continue in the direction they've been for the past several years, by the time I'm looking for a new car, it'll prolly be a hybrid.

FYI- oil is at $51/barrel today. Down from $52 yesterday. Nigera strike averted.

Hey, my Cam is getting 26-28 MPG. I'm cool :cool:

Bet if I drove it easy (like not doing the freaking burnout in Wal*Mart's aprking lot last night) - I could get 30 MPG.

I know my trooper right now get's like 13mpg, that thing sucks gas. Guess that's just due to lack of maintenance though.
