I've been trying to find an answer on the forum, but I have found differing viewpoints regarding if hybrids are better suited for highway or city driving? I am not a commuter, but would anticipate most trips would include highway driving as I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with friends about 30 minutes or more away. I run errands more locally so that would be more of stop and go city type driving. So is it worth the extra cost to get a hybrid vehicle?
