Cost Of Car Ownership Calculator

CNET recently featured an overview of a new online car cost calculator.  The calculator has a limited list of cars you can select from so you can pick two vehicles and adjust things like miles driven per year, cost of fuel, and planned years of ownership.  Then it runs an analysis of the lifetime cost of ownership, lifetime cost of fuel, barrels of oil consumed, and emissions produced.  This is a great tool if you are considering purchasing a hybrid or holding off a purchase waiting on a full electric vehicle purchase.
