With gas prices so high, do you think we should start riding bikes or walking to places if we can?

  • Golf cart time!! For real though, I don't know what we will do as a family when gas gets above $5 a gallon because it's not like our boss is suddenly going to decide "hey the price of living went up, here is a raise"

  • to the first OP actually if gas prices keep going up that means public transportation is going to go up.

    It cost my dh to fill up the full size fan we have 130.00. We have a small car that was costing 30 to fill now it is like 50 to fill which is a lot cheaper, but it has a gas leak and well ya that will get expensive so better off to drive the van for now.

  • I have 3 under the age 5 & under. Not gonna happen here. We bought a bigger truck 2 years ago so we can fit in the 3 carseats that the law requires us to have. Now, if it was like when we were growing up and didn't need carseats then yes, I could have a smaller vehicle.

    We won't be walking or bike riding anywhere we need to go. Around the neighborhood is another story, but that doesn't help with anything.
