If I were driving the Prius I'd be spending about $15/wk in gas. I wish I had the ability to go BUY a Prius... sigh... oh well.
My BIL had a big old Land Rover that got like 10mpg. They traded it in for a Prius and are saving enough in gas money to cover the whole car payment. If you can convince your FIL to trade vehicles for a while, that would be a huge plus for you. Gas prices haven't jumped here yet, but I'm sure they will soon.
