Green is still mean when it comes to car prices

When it comes to changing our driving habits, money talks. Last year it took high oil prices to reduce the amount we drive, and now a survey today suggests we're buying greener cars because of the recession. Nearly half (42%) of drivers said their next car will have lower CO2 emissions than their current one, according to the poll by Auto Trader. Over half (51%) said they'd consider buying a greener car, 61% wanted higher taxes for gas-guzzlers and 40% of the 2,000 respondents are contemplating buying a hybrid. The key "finding" for me, however, is that price is still the deciding factor when people research a new car: 85% cited it as the most important factor. That chimes with my own recent experience of buying a car.
