Obviously anyone with half a brain realizes high gas prices are going to directly effect our economy. I am not just talking about the rising cost of food either.
I know for me personally I will be looking at the events we do and cutting down. I have been talking to other moms I know and they are doing the same thing. We all know it will effect the economy (especially locally) but we feel there is no other choice. DD will be giving up one or two classes a month since two of the classes are two towns over. The gas to go to those classes twice a week (total of 4 times a week for both) will be too much to make it worth it. That means those two companies offering my dd classes will lose money. They probably will end up cutting back employees if a lot of other moms make the same decisions (and many are). We also eat out after classes (4 times a week) and again that money wont go to the restaurants who are used to the money every week. See how this spirals and effects everyone?
So what are you cutting back on to save on gas?
