Gas prices are falling. So is interest in electric cars

As gas prices rose in the the first three months of 2022, interest among car shoppers in hybrid and electric cars rose right along with it.

As gas prices rose in the the first three months of 2022, interest among car shoppers in hybrid and electric cars rose right along with it. That's not too surprising, since so-called "electrified" cars cost less to fuel than gasoline-only cars. And shopping interest in electrified cars also dropped when gas prices did, according to data from the auto shopping website Edmunds.com.

What's surprising is that interest in "green" vehicles dropped by an even larger percentage than gas prices did.
