Gas prices. Has it made you change how much you drive?

Now I try to shop with all the stores close together. Park my car and hit different stores. That way I save gas.

  • We buy more at the grocery store at one time, so we don't have to make extra trips there. It also helps that my little girl is out of school for the summer. And my step daughter is going to stay all summer and visit her mother every two weeks for the weekend... So that will save alot of time and money.

  • I was already trying to group trips together, so no, I can't really drive any less than I do.

  • Nope. Doesn't change how little we drive. We spend maybe 60 bucks on gas per month, because everything is on base and we don't really need to go far to get what we need.

  • Nope, I still have to run the kids to school and sports, and my DD to her therapies. We have always just did whatever shopping we needed to do before or after those trips
