Family Finances Being Pinched at the Pump

According to a recent poll conducted by Mustel Group on behalf of Coast Capital Savings, close to one-in-three (29 per cent) Metro Vancouver residents say the high price of gas will impact their travel plans during the upcoming Canada Day long weekend.

The survey confirms that gas prices are having a real impact on peoples’ financial health and well-being, with 63 per cent of respondents reporting that gas prices are impacting their day-to-day finances. As one example, more than one-in-three families with children under the age of 18 (37 per cent) report the price of gas will impact their decision to place children in summer camp or other recreational activities this year.
