We’re all paying record high prices for gas making us chumps to the super profitable oil companies. Many people are taking hybrid cars more seriously now. So just which car is the most fuel efficient?

The good news is you don’t have to be a chump. These days, plenty of cars minimize fuel usage as well as pollution. According to this site on fuel economy from the U.S. Department of Energy, of all the cars available, the Honda Insight gets the most miles per gallon. The two-seater (with manual transmission) achieves 66 mpg on the highway and 60 in the city.

Of course, two-seaters aren’t for everyone. The Toyota Prius is the most fuel-efficient mid-sized car, with mileage well above the national average. We recommend checking out the EPA’s official site. It lists the fuel economy, pollution rating, and vehicle specs of just about every car available. If you’re thirsty for even more choices, this page on renewable energy explains the benefits of various alternative fuels like ethanol and natural gas.
