Higher Gas Prices Equal Fewer Accidents

Comments Off

Just came across this article on yahoo and thought I would share it with everyone. An article came across on yahoo.com entitled “Study: As gas prices go up, auto deaths drop.” The article dicusses a study by “Professors Michael Morrisey of the University of Alabama at Birmingham and David Grabowski of Harvard Medical School said they found that for every 10 percent increase in gas prices there was a 2.3 percent decline in auto deaths” The article also stated “The Department of Transportation said last month that Americans drove 1.4 billion fewer highway miles in April, the sixth month in a row that driving was down and a historic turnaround after decades of annual increases in driving.”
