  • Natural Gas Cars Reselling Well (Popular Sci)

    We reported last week on how feebly powered, fuel-sipping 1990s-vintage hatchbacks have been lighting up the used car market recently due to skyrocketing gas prices. In an interesting twist to this phenomenon, I actually benefited myself somewhat from this hysteria when I had to sell my beloved natural-gas-powered 2006 Honda Civic GX last week on eBay, turning it into one of the smarter investments I made all year.

    And Okie bought it?!

      18,000? probably 28,000, That must have been a typo, because if you look at the original article, he bought the car for 24k. Selling for 18k is a loss.
