There's a lot of choices in today's car market and a lot more choices coming in tomorrow's.

Three Tips To Save Gas
1. Keep your engine tuned and your tires inflated.

2. Use nitrogen in your tires. It maintains pressure better than oxygen.

3. Remove any drag on your car. Roof racks, open windows, open sunroofs, and team flags create drag on the vehicle and thus reduce gas mileage.

Hybrids & Electric Cars
Hybrids are traditionally defined as vehicles with two engines, gas or diesel combined with an electric motor. Different companies have different technologies that make their hybrids more or less efficient.

Tips for buying a hybrid.
1. Buy your hybrid when gas prices dip. When prices dip, consumers go out and buy gas guzzlers.
2. Do not be talked into paying premiums. Keep shopping dealerships until you find the right deal.
3. Look at the numbers produced. Some manufactures only make a few thousand cars a year in their production lines. Look for a manufacturer who is truly making mass quantities of their product.
Electric cars are cars that are driven completely off their electric engines. Some electric cars plug in to the grid to recharge. Others have small gas engines that recharge the batteries but do not directly power the driveshaft.

UPDATE : Chevy announces low production numbers and high prices on Volt.
