Do you drive at least one hour to work, (one way), and if so, how do you cope with the gas prices?
I drive approximately 60 miles to work one way. Does anyone else have that long of a commute and if so, how do you economize with the gas prices?
I used to commute about 60 miles each way to work and to save on gas, I joined a carpooling group and carpooled as often as I can.
I would never drive that far to work. I'd bet that many people who drive that far would find a new job or move if they were to calculate their actual commuting costs.
I'm SO GLAD you asked this question, because it gives me an opportunity to spout off about gasoline prices.....
Did anyone notice that many of the "news" "commentators" were all over Barack Obama when gas prices rose to $3.90 or more.... blaming him, personally and individually???
Lately, the prices have moderated (down to $3.47 where I am)... and I haven't heard so much as a PEEP from those "commentators" giving Obama CREDIT (personal and individual) for getting those prices to fall!!!!.....
I dirve approximately 58 miles each way during the work week. Before we moved up this way, we sold are big blazer and purchased two civis, which get almost 40 miles to the gallon. My husband is retried now, and I have about seven more years to go, and trying to hang in there with the gas prices.
Thank you for posting this question. I am buying a new house about an hour from my current job, and I am contemplating if I want to drive the whole way on my own schedule, carpool (there are coworkers I can carpool with), or take public transportation (which takes longer, but at least I can read a book). I am leaning toward using public transit; there is a bus as well as a train I can take.

I know gas prices are pretty here in the states at the minute, saying that if broke it down , england would cost about 8-9 dollars a gallon and ireland about $7 maybe $6 more even . So $4 aint bad when you count this. I know the other countries go by the litre rather then the gallon. Some...

I just heard that it is very probable that the gas will go up to $5.00 a gallon in the near...future in the United States; do you think it will happen? And why is it going up that much?

What do you think of rising gas prices and what do you think is causing gas prices to go so high?In southern Ontario gas is predicted to go to $1.55 a litre. That adds up to $6.20 a gallon by the end of May when gas usually goes up. I can see our tourist business will be struggling under these gas...

Gas prices are soaring as usual under Republican leadership. This will hurt middle and lower classes more than it does those who got the lions' share of the tax cuts. Not only do we have to repay the Chinese for the money we borrowed , we now have to pay higher prices for fuel. I hope those wanted...

With gas prices going up, and the economy struggling, what have you cut out or cut down on?

If you had one hour to spend $5,000, on at least 5 items, how would you spend it?
