Buy a new car? Gas prices to hit $4?

So do I buy a new car or live with the bad gas mileage.  If I get a car with 35 miles to the gallon instead of 13, prices go to $4/gallon, and I drive closer to 12,000 miles a year I can almost buy a car for $200/mo and be better off. While I have low mileage and it’s only about 7 years old… it is out of warranty and little things are starting to happen.  Is it time?
