As of last evening, we are now a two-Hybrid family.

I don't think that makes us, as my colleagues at work say, suckers (they're referring to analyses that conclude that the savings in gas prices don't equal the additional costs for the hybrid engine). It was never excusively about gas savings, since we bought the first one in 2003, before prices rose. For a couple of old hippies, it just seems like we're doing a LITTLE something for the environment.

Plus, they're neat little cars that run silently at stops and let you run on empty for a couple of days until you remember to get to a station. The downside is that all your kids want to borrow the Hybrid all the time when they take trips so they can save money on gas, which quickly runs up your mileage when you have five offspring.
