Autobytel Inc. recently announced its Consumer Choice data showing the
cars and trucks that were requested most by its online shoppers during
the second quarter of 2004. The numbers suggest that high prices at the
pump are causing a change in preferences of online car buyers — away
from large trucks and SUVs and toward smaller, more fuel-efficient
vehicles.

Surveys of auto dealers across the country and of online consumers
conducted by Autobytel also indicate the growing impact of high fuel
prices on car sales and shopping patterns.
