What can I do when gas prices go to $4? I don’t think I’ll stop driving (although working at home helps tremendously). I can’t go and buy a hybrid car (as much as I might like to). I can’t walk or ride a bike to places (not in a city).
I guess one thing that will help is doing a bit more planning (yeah, whoa … say that word again, P-L-A-N … its a neat concept and actually works). Plan on doing lots of things in one trip – like take Abigail to school, work out, go grocery shopping and other errands. Carpool with friends on these trips; pool resources. Can you believe that the average price just one year ago was $1.70? That seems like a bargain now.
If you haven’t already, go to GasBuddy.com and check out where the cheapest gas prices are in your area. Very helpful.
