While some say my 6 mile drive to work makes me the perfect candidate for an electric car, even at 10$ a gallon it would still not be economical for me to buy an electric vehicle.

At 10$ a gallon a new gas Nissan Versa would cost me $931 more per year in fuel costs than a new electric Nissan Leaf. But the Leaf costs $24k more than a Versa. So the electric Leaf does not save me money unless I own if for longer than 26 years. And that's even with gas at $10/gallon!

But I still hyper-mile just because I'm cheap.
