Prius Sales vs Gas Prices

March 20, 2007 at 8:43 pm | Posted in General | Leave a comment

Here is a chart showing the effect of US gas prices on the sales of the Toyota Prius. Sales generally increase with gas prices; sales increased by 44% when the $2 per gallon barrier was broken in early 2005. You also see the 2006 summer spike when gas hit $3 per gallon. The February 2007 sales are the highest ever with the 0% APR financing being offered by Toyota, combined with the reduced federal tax credit.
