We all have different needs. My commute to work is 13 miles one way. The Volt is not out yet, but they estimate I will pay about $30 a month more for electricity, but save about $90 a month on gas. Unlike electric only such as Tesla, Leaf, planned Ford Electric Focus, the Volt can still go cross country using gas, and in the future maybe some other alternative fuel. You save the most money close to home which lots of people do most of the time. They have not released the MPG on gas only yet. The estimated sticker price is to high for me right now, but I'm sure it will come down in time.
