Fuel Efficiency More Important Now than Five Years Ago to Buyers

USA Today - April 22, 2010

Car buy­ers are drift­ing toward more fuel-effi­cient vehi­cles today, much more than buy­ing pat­terns five years ago. The Top 5 best sell­ing seg­ments get two miles per gal­lon bet­ter effi­cien­cy than five years ago. It may not seem like a major mileage shift, but giv­en that fuel-effi­cien­cy num­bers were flat for 30 years, it’s prob­a­bly a move toward effi­cien­cy.
