... average of 10,000 miles per year at an average cost of $2.75 per gallon will only take you 18 years to recover your investment ...
So gas will only be $2.75 during the next 18 years
That must be what they are assuming. Geez, if that were true I wouldn't mind paying that much now.

We have logged over 50K since we got it new. Have we number crunched? Not that specifically; but I can tell you, we are not gassing up as much, not pumping out as much monoxide, and frankly, its fun as hell to cruise behind people in "stealth mode" (it runs silent in electric mode) in a parkinglot and watch their faces when they see a car running on silent. Basically, it has cut our gas bill by about 60% from what we were doing a couple years ago. Hell, I can haul the kayaks too. But then, with oil hitting 96 bucks today... I figure I will have it pay for itsself in no time!
Okay, okay, all joking aside. The thing is, we got rid of two cars we would be driving anyway for the Prius, which we drive anyway. Not looking for it to pay for itsself, but hell, it does save money, is a great item for the tech lovers and is better for the environment. Plus it was spoofed on Southpark. How can you go wrong?!?!

We don't drive and burn fossil fuels for the sake of finding geocaches. We only hunt caches if we're going to be in a particular for other reasons and there is a geocache along our route that looks like an interesting hike or kayaking trip.
