Fuel economy is another important consideration when buying a new car. So how can you avoid investing in a gas guzzler?

For starters, take a look at the vehicle's window sticker, which provides the Environmental Protection Agency's fuel economy estimates for city and highway mileage as well as annual fuel cost.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy's Fuel Economy Guide for model year 2011, "You could save as much as $1,400 in fuel costs each year by choosing the most fuel-efficient vehicle in a particular class. This can add up to thousands over a vehicle's lifetime."

The guide also reminds prospective buyers that "fuel-efficient models come in all shapes and sizes, so you need not sacrifice utility or size."

To see how much you can expect to spend annually on fuel for a particular make and model, visit the U.S. Department of Energy's fueleconomy.gov site.
