Hybrid or Plug in


I need help in selecting what's best for my commute - Hybrid or Plug in/Hybrid.

Here's my situation, round trip to and from work from my house will be around 180 miles about 175 miles freeway+traffic - if no traffic MPH will average 75 to 80. I do not have any charging stations at work

I'm looking at leasing a Volt, but i'm ignorant/confused on which vehicle will better suit me.

Volt is good for 60 miles(?) with electricity before regular gas kicks in...means that it's only good for one way. When gas kicks in it's good for low 30's MPG.

Also, considering a Ford C-Max which is supposedly good for 47MPG, but most people only get around mid 30's. Also, C-Max should be least expensive.

Please advise
