The price should be reasonable so that everyone could afford it.

I buy a hybrid on principle: to reduce my carbon footprint.

Realistically, however, if I triple my mileage from 17mpg to 54mpg, that means I cut in third the amount of gas I use. Do the math:

12000 miles/year / 35 mpg X $4/gal = $1371/year gas savings.

If I keep my car 10 years then it's $13710 overall savings, if my hybrid was only $10,000 more, I'd be ahead.

Of course, a recent article in Wired magazine showed that it actually costs a lot in terms of carbon emissions to make one hybrid compared to a conventional car, more that can be made up by the carbon saved. I don't know if that's true.

Nothing, they already cost enough in most cases. Paying extra would be counteracting the savings on gas if you were to buy one.

Nothing more - they already cost enough. By the time I'm ready for a new car, hopefully the price will come down some.

Yes, I would pay up to $2000 more for a hybrid. Especially if there were a tax incentive. In fact, I have done it! Toyota Prius is the most awesome vehicle I have ever owned. There is no excuse that a vehicle would get less than 30 mpg in this day and age. I am will never buy a car again that gets less than 40 mpg. So it is hybrid for me.

The Honda Accord hybrid pace car rocked the Detroit Grand Prix!

I just heard it costs $5,000 - $6,800 extra for a diesel engine in a 2008 truck.

Right now for a Hybrid but I would love to try one of the flex fuel vehicles that can run on E85 but as there is only 1 station that sells E85 in Austin Waaaay up north 12 miles away and the nearest one to me is still 7 miles away (notice these are distances as the bird flys not actual driving times) so that is not feisable at this time till more stations are avilible.

GeneS, please calm down and re read what I wrote.
I stated "Besides hybrid vehicles are still too unreliable to use in all parts of this nation (such as Montana and Wyoming) for me to invest in them at this time." I'm sure in Hartford and such parts never have an issue w/ their vehicles but I have lived in Montana and Wyoming where the in the winter time it can get -30 to -50 below and even the most reliable Gas running vehicle won't start just because its too cold to make a spark. Also Montana is so massive w/ miles upon miles of nothingness and alot of places that just aren't on an electrical grid so people use generators (those run on gas)so you wouldn't be saving alot to use it there. The Prius is very innovative in that it doesn't need to be plugged in as uses regenerative braking to automatically recharge its batteries or by running the onboard generator but if you live in an area where the nearest dealer is over 50 miles away so if anything goes wrong and its not something that the local mechanic can fix then like I said its not something I'm willing to invest in right now.
