On Fuel Economy

So, Diann and I recently moved, and while the routes to and from work are largely the same for me, I start off on a different section of Highway 520 now. The Prius now averages only about 43 miles/gallon due to the change in road characteristics.

Here's the sad thing: I just said it above, and Diann made this exact comment earlier this week in the car — the Prius now averages only about 43 miles/gallon.

Only?!? Only 43? That's still really good, let's be honest. I guess we've gotten spoiled by fuel economy over 50.
