How About That Cheap Gasoline?by Tim Manni
Over the last few months, we ran a survey in our weekly Market Trends Newsletter that revealed how cheaper gasoline prices have influenced not only our readers’ driving habits, but their savings habits as well.
When we asked our readers whether they were driving more since gas prices plummeted, nearly 77% said “No, I’m driving less than before.”
If there was one factor from cheaper gas that consumers benefited most from, it’s the extra cash in their pocket at the end of each week. What did the majority of our readers do with their lower gas price windfall? 63.8% said “Paying the bills!”
Finally, “Did higher gas prices change your driving habits?” Nearly 70% responded “Yes, drove less.”
