Default Honda insight(2011) or civic(2012) or Toyota prius (2012)?

I am a college student who needs to drive 80 minutes every day to go to school and come back home.

I have been driving my Elantra that is 10 years old and I am thinking about buying a new car.

Since gas price is rising, I thought it would be nice to buy a hybrid car.

So I looked into the official Honda website and the suggested price of the 2011 Insight was $15,805 when my dealer quoted $22,000. He said due to increasing demand of hybrid cars and rising price of the gas, Insight is expensive.

So I figured it would be better to buy 2012 civic that costs $15,805 or 2012 Prius that costs $23,050.

Would it be better to buy civic or prius or wait till things (Tsunami crisis and increasing price of gas) settle down and see how much insight costs?

Thanks for your answers.

You can advertise at your school for one or more people to carpool with, and you can all split the gas. Or you can rent a room during the week and commute home for the weekends.

You should look into public transportation. I used to take the bus to school and used the time to study. Besides wasting gas, you are wasting 400 minutes a week (1200 a month!!) that you can use for more productive activities.
