In 1991, I reported that petunia CHS-A::GUS fusion gene is induced by sugar in transgenic petunia and in transgenic Arabidopsis.
Expression level was corelated to level of sugars incorporated to plants.
Reference is: 

        Tsukaya et al. 1991, Plant Physiol. 97: 1414-1421.
Many genes of plants were reported to be influenced the expression level. Other examples I know are as follows:

        Baysdorfer and VanDerWoude, 1988, Plant Physiol. 87: 
        Guy et al. 1992, Plant Physiol. 100: 502-508

Recent reports were summarized in the following article:
