    I drive 2 hours every day to work and the price of gas as you know is going through the roof. I am thinking about buying a Toyota Prius hybrid but I dont want anyone to think I am a liberal. What should I do? Should I put a conservative bumper sticker on it or something? Like "Save the baby seals, club a liberal"? Or "Annoy a liberal, work hard and be happy"? Or am I being a hypocrite by buying a foreign car? I,ve never owned one.

    Why do you care what people who don't know you think your politics might be?

    Ps104_33 be pragmatic give credit where credit is
    due...if someone has a good idea and promoted it
    and now it seems to have been correct, you do
    the right thing...this is an area we can all agree
    on. No one is condemning a conservative or a moderate for doing a smart thing...smart has no
    politics.

    Just know your car and its performance and all the
    positives and respond accordingly.

    You will not be the last or the first person
    to buy a hybrid car..in fact you may
    be a head of the curve.

    Check the prius blogs. If you are mostly city driving you will save fuel but on the freeway it is doubtful especially if you use the air conditioner. Nex year or so we should have access to better diesels.

    I thought serious about buying a Prius a few months ago but since most of miles are on the highway it wouldn't do much better than a regular car so I purchased a Honda Accord and I love it. My wife has a Honda Odyssey that we bought three years ago. Lots of foreign manufacturers have plants in the U.S. now and lots of U.S. manufacturers have plants in foreign nations, so I don't see a problem with buying a "foreign" car.

    Most of my driving is on I75 where the speed limit is 70mph so maybe I should get the Camry? How about one of them new Mustangs.
