JEFF JARVIS IS GLOATING OVER LOW GAS PRICES: He bought the non-hybrid Highlander.
Hey, I'm glad that gas prices aren't such that my hybrid is a great deal. But my reason for buying it was more aesthetic than economic. I wanted something big, didn't want a minivan, and didn't want to get 14 mpg.
One upside -- the hybrid Highlander is really very quick, moreso than the gas model if you goose it. I don't do that much, since jackrabbiting in a truck is kind of silly, but when I've needed to merge and floored it I've been impressed with the power.
