- Prius for Life
I drive a Prius. A lot of people call me a hippie or make fun of my vehicular choice, but I always assure them, I bought the car for completely selfish reasons. Gas is too expensive—since I commute approximately 70 miles per day to get to work and home, I really need good gas mileage. I really think that the people who laugh about the Prius are the ones who are jealous. As soon as I mention I get 42 miles per gallon, they seem to quiet down pretty quickly. The only complaint I have about the car is that it’s ridiculously ugly on the outside.
