    I was in Fells Point here in Baltimore having dinner and walking around with friends and saw 6 Prii, three classic grey one salsa red a black and a seaside pearl.

    They are allover the place! I think the recent gas price spike has pushed loads to this car! It would be interesting to know the sales figures compared to last year...

    I have not seen another Prius around here for days. The last one was early last week, parked. It WOULD be very interesting to know sales figures-

    I usually see 2 or 3 others a day. Mine is the only black one I've seen. I alway see either white, or seaside pearl.

    I see very very few. Maybe 1-2 a week. We do have one that lives in our same apartment complex. It is black standard. Ours is a black touring

    Haven't seen any in several weeks. :( The last time I saw any Prii was when I went back to NC on vacation a few weeks ago, where they were all over the place. I would be very shocked to see one here in Benin anytime soon - or anywhere in West-Africa for that matter.

    I saw eight of them yesterday walking to and from lunch (about a mile). I sometimes amuse myself by playing "count the Prii" as I walk along... :)

    Where does a Prius walk for lunch and how do you get a Prius into "Walk" mode? I bet that mode uses even less gas! :lol:

    I lost count in Santa Fe NM Tuesday, but it may have been my first 100-Prius day. Dang I'll bet that Beaver Toyota sells a lot of cabin air filters :)

    I see at least 10 a day driving to and from work, but I do a long city commute, which is why the prius rocks, and I guess I could be seeing the same 5 morning and night lol.

    I typically see 2-3 per day in Toronto, where they are still somewhat rare, at least compared to the States.

    I was in Montreal earlier this week and saw a silver Prius taxi - very nice to see some other cities (or at least independent cabbies) following Vancouver's lead! B)

    I tried counting all the Prii I saw one day on the way home from work. I think I got up to about 12 before I stopped keeping track. Gotta love the Bay Area!

    I usually see about 4 on the highway going to/from work... but about 15 in few minutes I'm driving in or out of New Haven, CT. The Mayor even drives one, which cracks me up since he went to it from a Ford Excursion.

    He still has almost hit me though :/ Seems like a nice guy but I'd rather not share a parking garage with him. :)

    A year or so back I counted Prii on the way to work and stopped after getting past 25. Today for a couple miles there were 4 of us in a row cruising down the HOV lane.


    Edit: Today (06/29) I counted again and saw 48 on the way to work. I was only counting the current generation because I always get the older model confused with Echos.

    Some days, I see a Hybrid Highlander on my way home...
    There is the one that lives a couple of blocks from us, but I rarely see any other Prii :(

    Saw 4 today at O'Hare and 1 on the tollway. I was fascinated as I followed a green one around and around the Arrivals loop, waiting to pick up my son. I got to see it from the front, back and both sides. It was a joy to watch! And an even bigger thrill to know what an environmentally "kind" car it is. Unfortunately I wasn't driving mine at the time - in the shop for a failed auxiliary battery. I really missed her! She is now safe and sound, tucked in for the night in my garage. All is well!
