Germans give up excesses amid energy crisis

“It is telling that more and more people seem to ask themselves what they can do without and then actually do so,” NielsenIQ expert, Lothar Steiblin, was quoted by dpa as saying.

According to a representative survey of more than 10,000 people conducted by the company, 52% of Germans only buy basic necessities.
Some 44 percent said they avoided entertainment and luxury products, 31 percent try to go out to restaurants less often and about 30 percent agreed with the statement that they do less shopping under the current circumstances.

“The longer the crisis lasts, the more opportunities people have to save money,” states Steiblin.
