KENMORE, N.Y.-- With gas prices topping four dollars a gallon these days, filling up at the pump is definitely hurting people's wallets.

One local dealership says investing in an electric car may put some money back in your pocket in the long run, and demand has been high.

"We've definitely seen a trend for consumers coming in and being very conscious of fuel economy," said Duane Paddock, President and CEO of Paddock Chevrolet in Kenmore.

With drivers feeling the pain at the pump, more fuel-efficient vehicles were some of the industry's best-sellers last month.

There are incentives for purchasing vehicles with better fuel economy, including a $7,500 tax credit for those who qualify.
