I personally believe in having my monthly overhead cost as LOW as possible. It just dont make sense to me why folks will go and buy a $40k car and have a $300 a month car payment! the money you save in fuel cannot exceed the price of the car for at least 20yrs or so I would think..... Besides that, food taxes and other things are going to still be going up. Also, no one really knows how long this technology even last...!?!?! These hybrids might just start takeing big shits 10 yrs down the road! no thanks, I'll keep all 3 of our trucks that are bought and paid for, you go ahead and dump 300/month for a useless car. Now if your going to buy a $40k car to begin with, then there really is no argument, this is in comparison to someone who has a car/truck paid off or close to paying off. But this push that is out there to "trade" in your car to buy a hybrid dont make no sense to me.

I probably would have replied "It must suck to drive down the road and have people think you take it up the ass because of the car you drive."

Oh that really makes you much more mature and controlled than he was. Sounds more like you'd be the one who needs to grow up and take things with a grain of salt if an insult about a vehicle makes you result to physical violence.

op had no reason whatsoever to go off on some unknown stranger over what was more than likely a peaceful statement to start conversation on the truck. there was no call in insulting the guy or blaming him for whats wrong with this country. Maybe its the way i was brought up, or perhaps how things are where i live.. things like that arent recieved the same way, you'll get hemmed up pretty quick shooting off at the mouth like that.

All i was initially saying was that he's lucky he didnt get his ass beat.

Hey poo, I love your passion. I can also hear the Hybrid man sticking up for the environment. All I know is that you can not erase over 100 years of culture with inexpensive petroleum because you can click the best answer on a computer. Reality doesn't happen in a vacuum without history or consequences. I will not feel guilty for being alive and owning a Ranger.
