CITY VIEWS: WILL YOU DRIVE LESS AS PETROL PRICES RISE?

DANIEL COKER | RBS
“I will definitely drive less if petrol prices go up. I'll cut any unnecessary journeys from my schedule and instead of driving, I will try to use public transport or walk. I commute partly by car, partly by train, so I’ll try to just take the train.”

TRISTAN CHEESMAN | COMMERZBANK
“Even if the cost of petrol does hit £1.20 a litre, it wouldn't stop me driving. Prices are high already. I commute using public transport and when I do use my car, it's for a necessary journey, I’m not just popping round the corner.”

WILLIAM CLIFFORD | ACCENTURE
“I have a motorbike, which is significantly cheaper to run than a car, so hopefully I won't get hit as hard. I don't think a rise in petrol prices would convince me to use another mode of transportation. I'll probably just begrudgingly pay.”
