What Are You Doing to Cope with High Gas Prices?

7 of 9
Slide 6

Make Time for Multi-Tasking


"I live in CA where the prices are supposedly the highest. Today $4.55/gallon AVERAGE. It's higher in many places. We are staying home more. We are walking more. When we go we combine many activities into one long point-to-point trip in order to save gas. It's tough to have enough energy in oneself to do so much in one of these types of days, but it makes you too tired to shop and thus saves even more money for gas ... I guess it encourages an interactive approach to all aspects of your life. One trip out. One trip back." –joannmckean
