PRLog - March 1, 2011 - BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Since 2000, prices in May have been 52 cents per gallon on average higher than in February, according to the Energy Information Administration.
Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service, believes that the normal seasonal rise in prices has been pulled ahead by events in the Middle East, but he still expects prices to rise further. He predicts prices will reach $3.50 to $3.75 per gallon, barring more chaos in the Middle East.
"When we get over $3.75 we are looking at very serious consequences for the economy," he says.
Chevrolet has MANY models that will keep YOUR money in YOUR pocket so you’re NOT wasting it at the gas pump! Here are a few models that beat all of our competitors including Toyota, Honda and Ford!
2011 Chevrolet Cruze Eco gets an impressive 42 MPG whereas a 2011 Toyota Corolla only gets 34 MPG the 2011 Honda Civic DX gets 36 MPG and the Ford Focus S gets 35 MPG.
2011 Chevrolet Volt has the most AMAZING fuel economy - The Volt runs on electricity for an initial range of 35 miles on a single charge, before a gas generator seamlessly creates electricity for up to 340 additional miles on a full tank of gas. Just plug it in to charge the battery and most people can commute gas-free and tailpipe emissions-free for about $1.50 of electricity per day. There is really no competition to the Volt – the closest would be the Nissan Leaf. HOWEVER it only has a range of 100 miles and when the battery is dead it is not going anywhere – there is NO backup power source.
Here at Carr Chevrolet, we are excited to have been able to assist a few of our customers in obtaining their new Volt here in Oregon. Our customers are completely overjoyed with their new purchase! After seeing the Volt in person, you will say it truly is a spectacular vehicle – no wonder so many people were calling in after seeing it at the Portland Auto Show!
