The first time (late 2007) that gas prices hit $3.99/gal I traded in my beloved '97
Expedition for a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid.
With that move I went from 14 mpg to 28 mpg. It now has over 200k miles on it.

There are times that I miss that Expedition but the money saved over the years
made it easier to buy a '65 Mustang... yup, 289.
Just in time for 91 octane at $3.99!
