A new survey shows that rising gasoline prices will force changes in the driving habits of American adults, but only six percent of them said they plan to buy a hybrid/energy-efficient vehicle to alleviate pain at the pump.
The online survey, conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of CouponCabin from March 6-8, found that 3 in 4 adults in this country said they are changing their driving habits:
— 61 percent plan to drive less overall to save money
— 9 percent plan to carpool
— 8 percent plan to use public transportation
— 6 percent plan to buy a hybrid/energy efficient vehicle
