    Not having a commute, I never see that stuff. When I usually notice a Prius, it's blowing by me on the Interstate at 85 mph.
  • Re: What Would It Take for YOU to buy a diesel car?

    I'm always wary of the unintended consequences. Like my taxes taking a big jump, since oil revenues make up 25% of the budget here. And I have a lot of friends up in Alaska with their jobs and pensions at risk. $4 is a bit much, but I'm pretty okay with gas around $2.50 a gallon.

    And while it's nice to "stick" it to the Saudis et.al., just how destabilized to you want Russia to get?

    As they say, interesting times.

    Stever, save yourself $30 or $40k and buy the Camry....sounds like you won't notice the difference anyway.
    Most sedans look alike to me. At least Toyotas have names - the number stuff really confuses me!

    Another POV on spending that $10 oil tax on infrastructure from the current champion state of the US boondogglers:

    "The solutions are obvious. Don’t fund projects without independently verified financial and feasibility studies. Don’t start projects without all the money on hand to finish them. Don't invest public money in economic development projects without private investment. And don’t spend millions on engineering and environmental studies until all the players have skin in the game." (ADN)

    So, first, you have to determine that you need a car and get your spouse to vote for the deal. Check Edmunds for the feasibility of driving that Miata - oh, you have two kids in the household? Opt for a minivan. Then save up and pay cash for it. :D

    (Part two is sit back and watch the economy crash....)

    Truth in typos?

    "I have for sale a 1999 Mazda Miata 1.8. Cosmetically needs work but car runs good asking 3000 obo. Willing to trade for another real wheel drive car "
