Ok, so in my further car shopping thoughts and thanks to The Consumerist, I found this cool calculator. The discovery? The calculator says that at the current $4.00 per gallon, it would take me over 11 years to break even on the Prius.
This is good news. I want to wait until spring to buy a car because I want to see the 2009 Prius Model (expected to be a big redesign) and I want to see the new hybrids that Honda is offering. I feel better and better about keeping the CR-V for now.
