The Western Star - - Front Page -

A new tool is avail­able to mo­torists in New­found­land and Labrador to help bet­ter un­der­stand the ef­fects of driv­ing on the en­vi­ron­ment. The pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment launched the ve­hi­cle ef­fi­ciency and cost cal­cu­la­tor on Thurs­day.

Us­ing the cal­cu­la­tor, which can be found on the prov­ince’s Turn Back the Tide web­site on cli­mate change, res­i­dents can com­pare the user costs and the im­pacts of dif­fer­ent types of ga­so­line, diesel, hy­brid and elec­tric ve­hi­cles.

The cal­cu­la­tor will help peo­ple make in­formed de­ci­sions and re­duce their car­bon foot­print, Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs and En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Ed­die Joyce said in a news re­lease.

“Our gov­ern­ment is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing tools to res­i­dents so that they can make greener choices when pur­chas­ing a ve­hi­cle,” he said.
