Hybrid cars are more expensive to buy than their gasoline counterparts, but are presently, cheaper to run as they are more economical to run. However, when something goes wrong, they tend to be more expensive to repair; and don't forget the cost to replace the hybrid's main battery. If you're looking for economy, I'd recommend a gasoline car that gets very good mileage.
Hybrids probably take 100,000 miles or more before you see actual fuel cost savings. Look up the pay back period for hybrids.
