Usually the price on the post is
The price, or advertised price, on the post for this gas station is:
From a far you will think the 3.89 is regular and 4.01 is the premium
but when you reach the pump it says cash and credit price. You look
back at the big post and the fine print will show cash and credit as
I didn't have cash so I drove away and pumped up on a 3.94/gallon
station cash and credit.
Bet they include checks in their definition of cash. At least they should
now that checks can be processed immediately by EFT (Electronic Fund
Transfer) thereby eliminating the dishonored check problem. I have EFTs
going both ways and have yet to be charged a fee. You don't even have to
fill out the check and it is handed back to you after the transaction.
The resale value of the Prius has nothing to do with how long it lasts
(compared to other Toyota's). It is high because there is a shortage of new
hybrid cars, and there is an extreme shortage of used hybrid cars (because
not many were manufactured until recently).
For example, the resale value of a big Toyota truck has plummeted. Not
because it has any reliability problems, but because no one wants a gas
Without knowing the sales figures for the Civic Hybrid, I have to wonder why
they've taken the back seat to the Prius. Is it possibly because the car
has only a little "Hybrid" plaque on the trunk indicating its inner
workings? The Prius is so totally different from other Toyota models it's
easy to identify as a Hybrid. Maybe a Hybrid buyer wants people to know up
front that he has the "green" conscience ...and the bucks, to do so.
Ah yes Johnny, but you guys have the National Health to fall back on if you
cut your wrists over the price of gas.
If we don't have health insurance (at great cost to us)
we'll bleed out in the street! : -)
Reminds me of buying gas in Ireland five years ago.
It was 85p (or being in Euros, is that "c" ?) per liter, and as I watched
the figures on the pump climb rapidly, I grimly thought "Well, when rape is
inevitable, just relax and enjoy it."
Yes, &/or the styling. Personally, after having 4 Corollas in a row, with
the exception of the first one - a liftback, the subsequent 3 others' sedan
styling is becoming distinctly boring from my POV. Whereas the Prius is 1)
a liftback, & 2) is just... 'different' - not the same old, same old re:
styling. And I love its interior - the amount/no. of storage spaces &
AS far as the Civic Hybrid goes, my 05 got worse mileage than the
equivalent "regular" civic on the highway. That plus its miserable
tight interior and slow pickup convinced me to trade it in for a
Malibu(SS Maxx). With a light foot, I can get well over 24 mpg on the
highway with the advantage of having the power to get out tight
situations when the need arises.
