I have a modest commute and discovered, switching from my Forester to a Civic Hybrid, that the hybrid just about pays for itself in avoided fuel expenses.

It's not saving me enough to offset its insurance cost too, but that's probably hoping for too much. You, however, might actually get there.

Start a Garage page on your Prius. Read the 65+ tips for saving fuel, adjust the nut behind the wheel, etc.
