57% of Americans would consider buying a hybrid

According to a recent Gallup poll, 57% of Americans would consider buying or leasing a hybrid when they next purchase a car. Upper-income Americans are slightly more likely than lower-income Americans (62% vs. 55%) to say they would seriously consider buying a hybrid when purchasing their next car.

Younger (64%, age 18-49) and middle aged (55%, age 50-64) Americans are more likely to consider hybrids than seniors (39%).
hybrids appeal much more to younger and middle-aged Americans than to seniors. Sixty-four percent of adults aged 18 to 49 say they would seriously consider a hybrid for their next car. This is only slightly lower (55%) among those 50 to 64, but drops to 39% among those aged 65 and older.

Lower income Americans have been cutting back on driving due to gas prices. When making less than $50,000 a year, 59% of the respondents said they had cut back on driving, while only 36% of those making $50,000 or more have cut back. But 48% of those in the upper income bracket have cut back in other areas due to gas prices, while 60% of lower income have made cuts elsewhere in their spending.
