Fuel prices have rocketed over recent years – there's no other word for it. Five years ago it was just 88p; today it's typically £1.36.
And now we're talking about what happens when it hits £2 a litre.
Well it seems 1 in 5 drivers will give up their car when that happens.
According to research from insurance company Hastings Direct, 20% of drivers will give up their car completely if prices at the pump hit £2 a litre.
So it seems that many more people need to know about Liftshare.com!
Remember that motorists would simply need to share their journeys with one other person, and they'd effectively be paying £1. (Share with two people, and they'd be back to 1999/2000 prices).
The research also established that increasing fuel costs have already impacted on how frequently motorists use their cars: over three-quarters of those questioned admit they don't use their cars as frequently, and one percent have given up car ownership altogether.
