Gas prices aren’t driving demand for alternative-fuel cars like the Leaf. Even though the national average for a gallon of regular has been moving up in recent weeks and now stands around $2.65, according to AAA, it’s still about a dollar less than a year ago when the average for a gallon of regular was $3.67.

Used luxury car prices also took a big hit in April; seven of the 10 models with the steepest decrease in asking prices were from luxury brands with the Land Rover Range Rover SUV and Porsche Panamera full-size car rounding out the top three.
