High fuel prices trigger record diesel market share in UK

Here in the U.S. when fuel prices go up a few people buy smaller, more efficient vehicles. Most however just complain and demand that politicians do something about price gouging. Over in England, as fuel prices have continued to climb to over $8/gallon drivers are opting for more and more diesel engines. In November 2007, diesel market share hit an all-time high in the UK at 45.3 percent. It's estimated that diesels will account for 40 percent of all new car sales at the end of the year.
