We have decided to start looking for a small fuel efficient car. Our Ford truck is just eating up too much gas to go shopping and general running around. I don't know how much you are paying for gas but it is $1.24 up here and not likely to go down. As we have such a great distance to travel for shopping and church and so on it is getting costly.
We have decided that when we get a new (or new to us) car we will just insure the truck for a few months in summer so my husband can get wood and haul stuff and we can take out the little travel trailer we have.
I favour something like this Toyota Yaris but in yellow, I have always wanted a small yellow car, but every time I mention it my husband growls "Over my dead body". Yellow happens to be my favourite colour. However my husband is 6ft 2ins and fears he will be a bit crunched up. Neither of us know much about cars so he suggested I started searching on the internet for ideas, but I don't even know where to start. I suppose a new vehicle would be the most efficient as far as gas consumption but price is also a very important factor. A hybrid might be great but they are very expensive. We might just have to resort to a horse and buggy!
