This is the most expensive tank of gas I have purchased.
And what were the profits of the various petrol companies, last year?
What dictatorship are we in bed with these days?
At one level I’m glad I drive a Hybrid (2009 Toyota Prius – LOVE IT!) and I have been known to get 800km in a tank, but it doesn’t seem enough. No, I’m not going to rush out and get a GM Volt – I can’t afford it for one, and I’m not willing to be a test guinea pig for that kind of new technology.
I’ve always chosen cars that sipped fuel – two Toyota Echos (2001, 2004) and the Prius. I full admit, I am cheap when it comes to buying gas – why should I line the profits of the gas companies in bed with governments of questionable reputation? I also do care, somewhat, about the environment – and I agree it can be argued that simply by having a car that I’m not being very green. I do what I can, and have had a few initiatives at home to help green my own world.
