      For a car, I drive a Toyota corolla, it gets 45 on the highway. I need
      the ability to tow a trailer of 3500 pounds. This will be a farm
      vehicle, so hauling ability is a necessity, not optional.

      When we bought the corolla in 2007, we looked at a Prius. However, the
      highway mileage was the same. Since we are rural, 90% of our driving is
      highway, so our considerations are a bit different.

      I know it doesn't make any financial sense, but I think I will vote my
      conscience with my dollars and buy the hybrid anyway.

      Bright Blessings,
