If you’re thinking of a staycation this summer due to soaring gas prices, you’re not alone !
Over half of Canadian are cutting back on driving amid high gas prices.
A new Leger Poll also finds that for the most part, they aren’t telling insurance companies — which could be costing them money.
Another 15 per cent say they’re planning to adjust how much they drive in the near future.
Atlantic Canadians were changing their driving habits the most, with 70 per cent saying they’re driving less, while 55 per cent in Ontario are spending less time in their cars and in Alberta, the number is 46 percent.
One in five of those surveyed said they would consider buying a hybrid as their next vehicle, while 18 per cent said they would consider an electric car.
The silver lining is there’s an Ontario Staycation Tax Credit for those eligible.
