I currently pay around €1.40 per liter (works out to $5.83 per gallon)

Americans would go to war before they paid prices like that, and gasoline is relatively cheap in Germany compared to most other European countries

Prices have gotten to close to $5/gallon in CA but, yeah, that would drive most Americans nuts.

The fleet at the state agency I work for is a combination of hybrid gas/electric and fully electric cars. We have to travel statewide so there are days when I drive 400 miles round trip without the ability to recharge, so I feel like I need to use a gas-assisted car.

My personal car is still a gas-powered vehicle, but I’m only filling it (12 gal.) with gas every 20-22 days. The 2009 car only has 62K miles on it so I’m not planning on replacing it for a long time. I’m feeling OK about still driving a gas powered car because I’m using it so frugally.

It seems like every time I answer a questionnaire about green travel habits, no one asks the question about how close you live to the places you need to visit daily, and I wish that held as much weight as the type of car you use.
