Will the US government be pitching in any tax incentives to help overcome the cost differential?

This would have an effect on the overall time to recoup the initial price-tag hike...

Thanks for the calculations Tony! There are no special privileges here where I live for hybrid owners (that I am aware of). I do, however, live less than 3 miles from work, if she could travel back and forth 5 days a week on 0 gasoline that would be nice! I agree with you though, hybrids need to be able to recoup the cost within a few years. 10.86 is NUTS, half of that (if fuel shot up to $8/gal) is still too long!
