The Hummer is a GM piece of junk, there is no way the average Hummer will see 300,000 miles..most will struggle to reach 100,000 miles.

If you re-do the math with those far more plausible numbers, you get:

Prius costs $1.08 per mile over 300,000 miles.
Hummer costs $5.85 per mile over 100,000 miles.

And not surprisingly, others have reached the exact opposite conclusion:

Is it possible that a Hummer's better for the environment than a Prius is?

Its pretty obvious the "Hummer is better" is a myth based on one very flawed story from 2007.
which was then thoroughly 2007.

Guess you're right, they can make it say anything they want, it's who you choose to believe. Slate and Autobytel are fairly liberal in their positions, can't speak to the other two.
