Cost-saving measures in light of increased fuel prices

Dear editor,
FOLLOWING the recent hike in fuel prices, I was thinking aloud, or whether the cost of living, will influence the lifestyle decisions in our homes. Here I am thinking about the type of vehicles we drive and their consumption patterns.
In Zambia we tend to love bigger, flashy cars as these are seen as prestigious, but what many forget is that these cars have a high fuel consumption rate.
Since our roads are better now, thanks to massive infrastructure development, won’t it be a good idea if most of us were to revert to the Corolla, Vitz or Mr Bean’s Mini as part of our cost saving measures.
