Why wait at a gas station to pay those high pump prices? If you’ve got one of these Toyota Prius plug-ins, like this Burbank resident over on Griffith Park Drive, you can charge up your wheels right in your own driveway. When the battery is fully charged, you can crank up your ride and run on electric power.
Meanwhile, at the Shell station up at Magnolia Boulevard and Buena Vista regular is selling for $3.97 a gallon today. Not great, but better than $5 a gallon. For those of us who don’t have a hybrid — we have no choice but to make frequent and financially painful trips to the gas pumps. Sigh.
