Gasoline, magazines and mobile phone bills top the list of consumer spending on information or entertainment services, according to the results of a survey by National Central University's Research Center for Taiwan's Economic Development. Released yesterday, the survey showed that consumers spend an average of NT$1,534 (US$46.2) per month on gasoline, NT$843 on magazines, NT$817 on mobile phone bills, NT$602 on taxi fares and NT$520 on other types of public transportation. However, the items that cost the most are not necessarily the public's major source of information or entertainment, the survey said. The top five sources of information or entertainment are cable TV, mobile phones, home telephones, the Internet and newspapers, with people spending an average of 89.9 minutes per month watching cable TV programs and 57.5 minutes surfing the Internet. The survey, conducted from Oct. 14 to Oct. 17, covered 2,445 adults.
