Yes, I can do the math. It still burns me that I get such poor mileage. I probably use the car for a bit over 100 miles/week now - way less than I used to. But I'm still burning almost 5 gallons/week or almost $20/week in gas.
If I get >40mpgs, that's a savings of less than $10/week or about $500/year. At that rate, it would still take a long time to justify the added cost of a hybrid.
