I just got a new job in Irvine and have a girlfriend in Pasadena. I
moved to Anaheim so that I'm not too far from both.

Since I will be doing a lot of commuting I thought a hybrid would be a
good option. I checked both the insight and prius and the prius looks
like the best option, especially for traffic.

My question is, would it be worth getting a prius to save gas money??
It looks better than a insight since it doesn't run the gas engine all
the time. I just don't want to waste my money buying a hybrid when I
can just buy another car that burns less fuel (like a civic) for less
money.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Aaron

If you're going to buy a new car anyway, then it's worth buying.  It
will cost you more than a conventional car, but you'll get a $000 tax
exemption (not a tax credit, so the tax break is $000 multiplied by
your tax bracket).  Eventually, you will save in gas expenditures the
difference in prices--the better mileage the other car gets, the longer
it will take to make up the difference, though.

But the reason to get a Prius is not to save money; it is to cut down on
emissions and to enjoy the high-tech features. :)
