CR survey report: Fuel economy

Consumer Reports conducted a nationally representative survey to assess Americans’ beliefs and attitudes about vehicles’ fuel economy, as well as the current fuel economy of the vehicles they drive.  The data includes findings about consumers’ knowledge and attitudes about hybrid vehicles.

This nationally representative survey of 2,161 adults residing in the U.S. was conducted by phone and internet by NORC at the University of Chicago from September 23rd through October 17, 2022.

A Consumer Reports fact sheet with highlights from the survey is available here.
