Buy a gas/electric hydrid without plug in capabilities. When people plug in their hybrids the power needs to come from somewhere...usually power produced from coal burning. You really aren't doing the environment any favors or your wallet for that matter.

There is zero truth to electric vehicles causing gas prices to go up.

There are more reasons than can be listed here which influence rising gas prices, but fuel-efficient vehicles are not one of them.

Probably the only real reason gas prices continue to rise is because of the greed in the big oil companies.

Nothing to do with electric cars. Electric cars are not the answer to anything as it just pushes the pollution to another source...

China overtook the U.S. last year as the world's largest oil importer and has a large influence on global demand for fuels. China's consumption has risen 28 percent over the last five years, to 10.2 million barrels per day last year.

U.S. refiners are also free to sell gasoline and diesel to the highest bidder. A few years ago the U.S. became a net exporter of fuels for the first time in 60 years. The largest countries for export are Mexico and Canada followed by Brazil and the Netherlands.

Two other factors are making gasoline expensive:

High oil prices. Crude has not been below $100 per barrel since July and on average, the crude oil price is responsible for 2/3 of the price of gasoline, according to the Energy Department.

Refineries temporarily close down in the winter to perform annual maintenance. This lowers inventories and causes prices to increase almost every year in the late winter and spring
