BEVERLY HILLS—September was looking hopeful for Southern California drivers as summer was ending and residents were eagerly anticipating that dropping gas prices would accompany it.

According to californiagasprices.com, as of Monday, October 1 gas prices have continued to rise drastically shooting up from $4.16/gal to nearly $4.50/gal. Perhaps it’s time that the feud with gas prices ends, with alternative fuel vehicles looking more desirable than ever.
Hybrid cars run on electric batteries and little gasoline, making commuting easier on the consumers’ wallet. Hybrids are available in all different car types such as Sedans, SUVs, Lexus, Prius, pickups, and coupes.
