High Fuel Costs Lead Drivers to Go Hybrid

By Emily Le Cos - Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal

Margaret and Kathryn KingIndentical twins, Katherine King, left, and Margaret King, both of Oxford, traded their SUVs for Toyota Piruses in the last month. They each save about $350 a month in gas.

Many auto dealers sell fewer SUVs, more fuel-efficient cars

Had Margaret and Katherine King driven to Nashville last month instead of last week, they would have spent $80 at the pump. Instead, they spent $8.

That's because the identical twins from Oxford recently ditched their gas-guzzling SUVs for identical versions of America's top-selling fuel-efficient hybrid, the Toyota Prius. The mid-sized car - which combines a gasoline engine with a battery-powered electric motor - needed just four gallons to make the 275 mile trip.
