  • It hasnt really. I live in rural NC and I have to drive to get groceries, clothes, pick up and drop off kids, and really anything we need I have to drive to get it.

  • No affect on my driving or spending habits.

    ***
    Is that because you live and work in NYC and don't own a car, and rely on public transportation or your feet to get you where you need to go?! LOL :o)

  • I work an hour away and thats about all the driving I do anyway so it probably won't effect it too much.

  • it effects me big time, given the fact that i am a one income household. it's getting so ridiculous, and then i have to pick up all three kids from three different locations, put gas in my car like every two days. recreation time is effected, have to preserve gas however i can.

  • It's not.... But I see it impacting more and more people I know... I imagine if it gets to a certain level, we may re-evaluate summer camping plans, but thus far~ no.

  • Ummmm, personally I probably just won't drive as much, thus not stimulating the economy as much. Oh well. More money for me to hoard.

    No, sorry Lori, You're wrong again. I'm financially secure. I have far more than I need. I have been truly blessed. Gas prices will not affect my life.

    We are financially secure as well! And gas prices will not affect us at all either. I mentioned spending less because I'd rather spend my money expanding our stock portfolio than on useless crap!
