As gas prices continue to skyrocket, some B.C. car owners are looking for less expensive alternatives.
Blair Qualey, president and CEO of the New Car Dealers Association of B.C. says the demand for electric and hybrid vehicles has already grown.
“I’ve had a lot of people reach out to me saying, where can I find an electric vehicle? Gas prices are killing me. So, electric vehicles have been very popular already. We’ve had a very strong past two years. and add the gas price to it — I think you’ll see a lot more people having that conversation around the dinner table about their next car.”
B.C. drivers have seen prices go as high as $2.099 per litre of regular in recent days. And skyrocketing prices are being seen on both sides of the border, with gas surpassing $4 per gallon recently in the U.S.
