would one have to wait for the Chevy Volt to become the cheapest option? How many people do you think seek out this kind of analysis prior to buying a car, and what does this say about consumer choice? To complete this assignment, review the Blog Discussion Rubric document. Blog post: For the first results, the vehicle that stood out was the 2012 Honda Accord. The annual fuel cost, operating cost, and emissions were all notably higher than the 2012 Toyota Prius and the 2012 Chevrolet Volt Plug-in.

I wasn’t surprised by the numbers, as much as I was surprised by the idea that it never dawned on me before how reasonable those numbers are. The first graph, however does not favor the Volt, however, as it paints the Volt as a bigger long term investmentWhen running the second experiment, changing the cost of gas to $10 a gallon, my eye was drawn, once again, to the Volt. There was a significant change in cost of ownership graph.
