from Convenience Store News
Despite using less gasoline in 2011, U.S. drivers still spent more on fuel than they did the previous year, according to market research firm The NPD Group. Its Motor Fuels Index, which tracks motor fuel purchasing behaviors and attitudes, found that U.S. consumers spent 24 percent more dollars on 1.7 percent fewer gallons of fuel last year, resulting in an additional $76 billion being spent on fuel versus 2010.
