Survey Says!

March 7, 2011
In last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers if rising gasoline costs are affecting their businesses. Do you agree with their responses?

In last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers if rising gasoline costs are affecting their businesses. The majority of respondents (71.4%) answered yes, while the remaining responses were split evenly between no and unsure (14.3% each).

One reader said, “Absolutely, higher gasoline prices translate to decreasing travel budget, increasing product costs to customers, and generally cutting back on all discretionary expenses. This is a MAJOR problem that will delay any economic recovery.”

Another reader disagrees: “The duration of these increases has been far too short to judge any realistic effects on business. Your question would be more appropriate in 3-6 months from now.”
