Goodbye Gas Guzzling SUV....Hello Natural Gas Dream!
It kills me that gas has actually reached $4.00 a gallon. I get sick every time I dump $60 into my car....and that's every week. I mean, we are basically paying an extra car payment with the amount of gas we use each month. The last couple of months Bryan and I have been researching natural gas vehicles and weighing the pros and cons. In the end, we found that the pros far outweigh the cons. So, we are the proud new owners of this 1998 Honda Civic. Isn't she a beauty? Although the car smells like mothballs.....she runs like a champ!Here are just some of the pros and cons to owning a natural gas vehicle:
*Paying $0.64 a gallon
*Getting a $2,000 tax credit
*Being able to ride in the carpool lane at any time...SWEET!
*Less cargo space
*A smaller tank (only holds 6 gallons)
*Limited gas stations carrying natural gas
We figured that if the gas prices stay where they are or increase in the future, we will be saving at least $3,000 a year.
