Calculator: Does a Hybrid Car Make Sense for You

Have you ever wondered whether buying a hybrid vehicle can save you money? How much less will you spend on gas if you drive a snazzy Prius or Civic hybrid? Will the monthly reduction in gas spending off-set the potentially higher cost of the vehicle? How much CO2 will you be able to save by moving to a cleaner vehicle? Well here is your chance to find out.

Use the simple calculator below to figure out if a hybrid is the right choice for you. Use the sliders to set the cost of gas in your area; select the number of miles you travel on average each month; drag the dials to set the fuel economy on your prospective hybrid car and compare that to your traditional gas guzzler. Don't forget to enter vehicle price for the two cars you are comparing.

The results tell you how many years it will take you to break-even, how much money you will be spending on gas each year, and how much CO2 you will be spewing on your way from A to B. Enjoy.

I think that there is a large variety of hybrid cars which can be found on different prices. I think that now a person with a low budget can also get a hybrid car of his choice.
