Have you considered buying a Ford C-Max Energi to save on fuel costs?  There is a useful tool, the EVExplorer created by the University of California Davis to estimate the fuel cost of commuting.  The web application uses the U.S. government’s fueleconomy.gov website.  You can compare four vehicles.  After giving the application your home address, work address, cost of electricity, cost of gasoline, how many days you commute and charging option at work, it estimates the annual cost of commuting.  Commuting isn’t all we do, but EVExplorer is useful to decide whether fuel cost savings should play a significant role in your purchasing decision for a plug-in hybrid, all-electric, or traditional gasoline-fueled vehicle.
