Seems like everyone is bitching about the high gas prices. Except for us earthy crunchy types. Finally, Americans are learning how to conserve finite resources. Driving is way down. Smaller cars are selling briskly.
My little poll showed that gas prices are affecting many of us. My husband now carpools with 2 other coworkers, 50 miles roundtrip daily. I thought the day would never come.
I don’t drive much anyway, as I telecommute for work (or take the train when needed) and mostly walk to the kids’ schools, the library, the park, the grocery store. Now that I’m jogging regularly, I simply jog to the post office or some other practical destination.
Perhaps the two people who said “no lifestyle change” are already leading car-free lives. Maybe.
