Lets say you drive 40,000 miles this year which is probably about right:

(40,000/35)*3.9=$5,015

Depending on the taxes and fees your state has it might not even be worth it to go through the aggravation of getting buying and selling a car in a year unless your car now gets awful gas mileage/ you don't want to depreciate it too much.
I meant 5 grand vs my current car. My current car uses super and is like 20 mpg

You do bring up an excellent point though. Choosing the hybrid over a regular civic, I save 1k roughly in gas, and I risk a lot more potential headaches with the battery crapping out on me, while also losing a lot of performance.

At that point maybe I should just get the civic and give up 1k in gas savings.

Actually that was a math fail by me. It would be more like 3466 vs. 4457, but the point still stands.
