Check out this cover of Hey-Ya. It's awesome.

Anyways, the last few weeks I've had the car bug. Well, not so much the car bug- but the gas prices for a SUV are eating my lunch bug. I actually love my car very much, I just hate the money it takes to run it and I'm really getting into the green movement.

So, with all that said, I have fallen in love with the prius. What a cool car! I even went to the Toyota dealership and was wooed by some man named John for about an hour and a half. The prius is the coolest car ever. You start it by simply pushing a button! This is the car of the future. As I drove it I couldn't stop watching the little screen that told me I was getting 99.9 miles to the gallon as I was breaking. If I got one I could easily get into a wreck just by watching that screen. So, I'm totally sold on the hybrid.

But then John brought me my monthly payment options and he totally burst my bubble. My new car payment would be much higher than my gas savings. So, back to reality. My car of the future will simply have to stay there.

uHey Sue...don't forget used cars. We bought a Civic Hybrid a little over a year ago for a really good deal, and we love it! Plus it had the certified used car warranty with it because we bought it from the dealership. Anyway, just my two cents.

Yep, I was going to say the same thing- look at used Priuses... Prii? Matt researches this stuff all the time, and apparently the cheapest car to own in the long run right now is the Toyota Yaris. Living in LA is making us think more green as well!
