On the news they've been saying that some Americans are reducing their driving miles due to high fuel prices. Are people on this board doing this? Option #1 requires a little explanation. "Doing things differently..." can mean taking public transportation, carpooling, combining trips, walking, or riding a bicycle, scooter, or motorcycle. Any alternative that is intended to reduce your fuel consumption other than just not going.

Please select the option only if your alternative is significant. For example, it should impact at least 5-10% of your travel.
