Higher Gasoline Prices: Temporary or Time to Buy a Hybrid? (Page One Economics Classroom Edition)
Classroom Edition (.pdf)

Or is it time for drivers to alter their driving habits, maybe by buying a hybrid car? Be sure to read the September 2012 issue of Page One Economics Newsletter —“Higher Gasoline Prices: Temporary or Time to Buy a Hybrid?”—for a discussion of factors that might influence that decision.
