Gas Prices Are High, Shopping From Home Grows

United States(prwindow)- March 07 2008 -This year, 117 million people, or two-thirds of Internet users, will make at least one purchase online, with the average buyer spending $1,123. ECommerce with AIT is the viable alternative
Fayetteville, NC, March 07,2008--Fewer cars will be seen on the roads and in the Mall parking lots this spring and summer as a result of soaring fuel prices and the explosion of eCommerce alternatives” predicts Byron Keaton, a Marketing Analyst with AIT, ( . More and more people are driving less and shopping from the comfort and security of their homes than ever before. “With average prices at the pump above $3 a gallon, filling up is causing American consumers increasing pain in the pocketbook” says NPR’s Scott Horsley. According to an ABC News poll, “Americans are not just dissatisfied with the cost of gasoline, a sizable number are downright angry about it. And they might get madder still: Many are cutting back elsewhere in order to keep paying at the pump, and if prices hit $3 per gallon long-term, more than six in 10 say they'll have to reduce their driving.“

So what effect will this have on the overall store and retail shopping? A Dow Jones Market Watch article explains: “Shopping online helps cut gas costs that would be accrued shuttling to and from the mall. Of course, all of this doesn't necessarily mean that these online shoppers will spend less. "I wouldn't be surprised if they end up spending the same amount, but getting more for their dollar," said Bruce Weinberg, marketing and ecommerce professor at Bentley College in Waltham, Mass. “It's like going to a happy hour when appetizers are half price, but deciding to buy two appetizers instead of one because it's such a deal”, he said.

According to a new e-Marketer report, US retail e-commerce sales are expected to reach $243.5 Billion by 2011. This year, 117 million people, or two-thirds of Internet users, will make at least one purchase online, with the average buyer spending $1,123.
