My new house and job are really close together. My Accord now gets lousy gas mileage (no better than 22mpg) because of the short distances, hilly terrain and traffic signs/lights. My girlfriend's hybrid seems unaffected by any of it. So I might wind up selling / trading in my Accord before my 10 year target in part because of its fuel economy.

Given the distance, you won't recover the difference in less gas usage.

We have a Prius, and it is a good commute car. At the same time we bought it a relative needed a car. It was going to be necessary for them to finance the car. My advice to buy a used non-hybrid was actually heeded. There was no way it would have been possible to recover the $15K difference in gas. Especially, when after 4 years, the car was totalled.
