Economy cars are getting hotter as the gas prices are getting higher . . .

Fuel pumps are a bad place to be.

The more time we spend here, the less money we have for other things.

I was a little taken aback from not seeing this . . . or thinking about this happening . . . it makes sense.

A client calls me, asks about getting a Prius.

She asks me what is the average market price on a 2008 to 2009 model.

Well, the last one I bought was in December of 2010 and I figured they would be about the same.

Oh, no . . no no no . . . I was wrong.

As the fuel prices have been climbing, it seems the little Prii has been crawling up with them as well.

At this very moment, expect to be paying $2000 to $3000 more that you would have paid for a Prius back in December 2010.

Or, maybe consider something non-hybrid . . . like a Yaris which get similar Highway fuel economy or go with a different car maker. . . the Honda Insight and the Honda Civic Hybrid are both going for less in comparison to their Toyota super fuel saver counter part.

    You can expect gas prices to rise every spring. It seems to get earlier and earlier each year. That’s because oil futures traders know demand for gas rises in the summer. They therefore start buying oil futures contracts in the spring in anticipation of that price rise.’
