My (Fairly) New Vehicle

My new Ford Escape HybridI got a Ford Escape Hybrid in February – just in time to help with these insanely high gas prices. Actually, I believe gas prices are too low and gas taxes could be raised to help pay for public transportation, but that’s another topic 😉

I really love this vehicle. It’s fun to drive, I can see the road better, since I’m at the same height as most other vehicles on the road, and I love the mileage 🙂 So far, it looks like I’m getting around 34 mpg. My commute to work is mostly stop-and-go traffic up to and through a tunnel, where three lanes of traffic funnel down to one through the tunnel. Then it’s city driving for about 3 miles to the office. So it’s perfect for this car. I used to fill up every week or so. Now it’s every 2-3 weeks 🙂 Love it.

My license plate - WEBDS9I also got a new license plate to go with my new ride. I have to give Donna, the graphic designer in my office, credit for part of the idea – her plate says DES9R, and I took the 9 to do mine 🙂 btw, I also designed the license plate holder, as a fundraiser item for the local League of Women Voters. Cool, eh?
