They see the benefits , environmental benefits , that they are becoming more environmentally conscious and gas is a cheaper fuel.
But because gas cars cost more , it is expensive for owners to be environmentally conscious.
Moreover, there is a huge environmental focus in the future , therefore also think the automotive environment.
