Jaakko Kangasluoma pained in his column (HS 9.10.) The difficulty of choosing the propulsion of the car – and again the gas was forgotten. As alternatives, he only considered gasoline or electricity. In terms of decision-making, this is an example of the availability skew identified by the Consumer Agency, where recent or easy-to-remember things guide thinking and shopping behavior.
Gas as a driving force does not show up in discussions, so it is forgotten when making decisions. The situation would be remedied by an extensive examination of the various propulsion options, but it is difficult, as the author noted. With a little research, gas becomes very comparable alongside electricity, as long as it can only be taken into account. Driving with biogas is counted as zero emissions in traffic, so nature also thanks.
