Majority of Canadians worried about rising fuel costs – Survey

Ottawa, A new survey stated the majority of Canadians are worried about the increasing price of gas, according to Nanos Research organizations.

The survey, commissioned by Canada Television Network (CTV) News, found that six in 10 Canadians said they are likely or somewhat likely to buy more fuel-efficient vehicles as a result of the increase.

Canadians are split on whether they think they will decide to drive less during the summer because of the rising costs of fuel, the survey found.

More than half of the Canadians surveyed said they think that the carbon tax is an ineffective way to encourage people to cut down on their fuel use.

The carbon tax, which came into effect April 1, applies to Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
