GAS MILEAGE IS A TOP PRIORITY FOR DRIVERS LOOKING TO BUY A CAR THIS YEAR.
THAT'S ACCORDING TO A RECENT CONSUMER REPORT SURVEY...WHICH SAYS HIGH GAS PRICES ARE INFLUENCING PEOPLE'S DECISIONS WHEN BUYING A CAR.
TWO-THIRDS OF THE DRIVERS SURVEYED SAY THEY EXPECT THEIR NEW CAR TO GET BETTER FUEL ECONOMY THAN THEIR LAST.
TWENTY-TWO PERCENT ALSO SAYING THEIR NEXT CAR WOULD BE A SMALLER VEHICLE TO HELP CUT GAS COSTS.
BARTLETT says: "The latest Consumer Report survey we found that consumers are putting a high priority on fuel economy, at thirty-seven percent saying it's their primary factor in shopping for their next car, well above the second rated factor of quality with just seventeen percent.

BARTLETT says: "About three quarters of consumers surveyed said that they would consider an alternative powertrain, such as an electric car, a hybrid or even a diesel, when shopping for their next car. Really what these consumers are looking for is relief at the pump, and they're willing to consider a wide variety of options to achieve it."
MANY SURVEYED ALSO EXPRESSING CONCERN ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF GAS...AND THE COUNTRY' DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.
