Gas Demand Down

  • With the rise in gas prices, demand for gas is dropping for the year. I just read this article from the NY Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/22/business/worldbu siness/22oil.html?hp



    This got me thinking. I know we aren't driving any less than normal (we basically only drive when we have to anyway). Is your family conserving gas in some way? If so, how?

  • Well, I've been wondering about this a lot when I'm out driving - what other people are doing and if they are changing their habits. Yes, this has affected how I drive. For example, we have not driven out to the beach for a very long time as that is a two-hour drive. I also try to combine errands and shop at stores closer to the house, whereas in the past I didn't give it much thought. Maybe more than anything else it just gives me something to worry about, without really forcing any lifestyle changes, you know?!
