I just drove a 2021 Escape PHEV and loved it, using just under2 gallons of gasoline in a 149-mile week of mainly local driving and two 40-mile-plus runs to appointments.

What are the costs?

$1.04 for electricity to drive 25 miles, compared with $2.50 with gasoline.

$850 annual energy cost, assuming 15,000 miles a year, divided 45% highway/55% surface streets.

The more short trips, and the more surface streets you take, the lower your costs, because hybrids are more efficient in stop and go driving, and you can avoid using gasoline at all in many local drives.
