Fuel prices continue to rise in Charlotte, Monroe and Matthews, NC. Another great reason to buy at Sierra 1500 Hybrid Truck in Charlotte, NC!
Although Libya is a small, remote country far from this part of the world, and only affects approximately 3% of the U.S. oil imports, its fuel crisis still managed to cause a major increase in fuel prices worldwide. The fuel price increases are the second-highest, two-week jump in gasoline market history according to a recent CNN article.
Per the latest Lundberg Survey, conducted this past Friday, the national average for a gallon of self-serve unleaded gasoline is at $3.51. This is an increase of 32.7 cents from the same survey only conducted two weeks prior. Since September 2010, the survey found that gasoline prices have risen nearly 82 cents.
Although the Libyan crisis is causing national gasoline prices to skyrocket, it doesn’t mean that drivers are limited to only small, economy cars. The GMC Sierra 1500 Hybrid pickup truck is the perfect, powerful solution to just such a crisis.
In order to optimize fuel economy, the GMC Sierra 1500 Hybrid pickup truck features patented hybrid technology. In addition, this amazing heavy-duty utility vehicle can even operate up to 30 miles per hour in electric-only mode. This is possible due to the advanced 300-volt nickel-metal hydride Energy Storage System. GM’s innovative two-mode hybrid transmission adds extra power via two electric motors.
The Sierra Hybrid has been shown to have the “best-in-class” fuel economy. It even has a 40% improvement in city fuel economy when compared to non-hybrid models. It manages to do all of this and still use its powerful 6.0L V8 engine for any towing and hauling capabilities expected from a full-size GMC pickup. These impressive trucks can be found at any of the Charlotte, Matthews or Monroe Liberty Buick GMC dealer locations.
