Gasoline. The alternatives make the price of the vehicle too high and the sources of alternative fuel are not reliable.

I would like a diesel or WVO / electric hybrid. I just bought our second gas/electric hybrid, and am quite pleased with it. First: Ford Escape hybrid, second: Prius.

After driving Prius for taxi company(some new, others nearing 400,000 miles) and still getting great gas mileage, I have to say Hybrid all the way. In fact the vehicle I am driving for them this week is 5 years old and is just over 389,000 miles and still receiving 47 mpg.
Yes! Definately Hybrid.

GAS is what I currently use. Knowing fossil fuels are non-renewable, I HOPE my next vehicle will be more energy efficient AND friendly.

Electric is nice BUT energy often comes from fossil or non-renewable energy.

I selected hybrid because it is likely the best transition, both financially and until we have readily available fueling options.

Well... I've had to drive the gas automatic since my shoulder got shattered after a PG&E smart meter explosion & fire, but my main car has been electric since 2003 and my next car will be a TESLA for sure. Driving a friend's Chevy Spark today was fun though..a totally respectable EV!
I am grateful to have gasbuddy to help me through some pretty stiff gasoline sticker shock.

I would like an electric powered car BUT it has to have enough power to drive a minimum of 300+ miles. I probably will only get a gas powered one due to the cost of an electric.

OKRifle has it. Dual fuel with Propane is my choice. Just as many Propane stores as gas stations. Try it, you'll like it.

Gas mileage is pretty much at an all time high.
You need to clock an awful lot of miles per year to justify the inflated prices of today's hybrids and electric cars.
Besides, they keep telling us about the falling gas prices, right?

Dear Santa,
I have been good all year. I have ate all of my vegetables. Cleaned the garage when my wife said to. And went grocery shopping with her so I could get the goodies I want also.

All I want is a new Motorcycle say 1800cc cruiser model with saddle bags and a sissy bar my wife lean on during long trips. How about a AM/FM intercom radio with that new Motorcycle ? A built in GPS navigation system may also be appropriate with this new Motorcycle.

P.S. Santa could you make this a Electric model so it won't be so expensive to run ?
