The Prius costs an average of $3.25 per mile driven over a lifetime of 100,000 miles ....
The Hummer, on the other hand, costs a more fiscal $1.95 per mile to put on the road over an expected lifetime of 300,000 miles

What kind of idiot numbers are they generating ? Lifetime costs of 585,000 dollars for a Hummer and 325,000 dollars for a Prius?

Cars are expensive at times ... but not THAT expensive.

Even if they slipped a decimal, the Hummer is cheaper. It would take 3 of the Prius @ even 32,500 x 3= $97,500 vs $58,500 for the Hummer.
I would be far safer in the Hummer, also.
Is there a problem with disposal of the Prius because of the batteries? Need more info on that.
