i rarely go places. i usually fill up once every 2 weeks, so i'm good to go.

 I try to do errands in a certain area on a given day and not have to keep going back.

We don't go anywhere that isn't necessary.  Take my SS to school and pick him up every other week, every day and pick up the little boy I babysit a few days a week and grocery shop, other than that we don't go anywhere.

 Slowing down a little on the highway helps too.

we havent changed our driving habits at all. Its only costing an extra $8-10 a week when we fill up. Thats not going to break the bank for us.

I fill up about once a month. So it hasn't hit us yet.

Dh's car gets good gas mileage. It also has a smaller tank, so filling it every week isn't as ouch as it would be to fill my van every week. As for me, I don't go very far. A tank of gas usually lasts a average of 2 weeks for me. And now that the weather is warm, we'll be walking home from dd's school as long as it isn't rainy. We live not even half a mile on the same street.
