Recently, consumers were floored to see gas prices top $3 per gallon, and now, it’s possible that in the not-so-distant future prices will hit $4 a gallon. The spiked cost of fuel will certainly affect consumer prices on lots of goods, but will the increase affect how much you drive your vehicle on a daily basis?
Families and individuals might second-guess road trips, but will $4 a gallon make you drastically change your lifestyle? Will you take advantage of public transportation or carpooling? Will you consider buying a smaller vehicle? Will you go out less? Or will you simply suck it up and pay at the pump?
Nope, increased gas prices will not affect my routine. As much as I hate to pay even more money for gasoline, I really don’t think it will affect my routine very much. After all, there’s no way to avoid driving to work or to the grocery store, and I really don’t want to curb my social life just because gas prices increase. It’s still only $4 a gallon, which is a lot less than prices in other parts of the world.
Yes, increased gas prices will affect my life. I am seriously considering making some changes with this impending increase in fuel prices. I will somehow, some way consume less gas because I cannot afford to pay $4 a gallon for gas.
