That being said, I am surprised that the current price of gas hasn't had more of an impact on what people are doing. For those who answered that way, why is that?

Is it simply that there aren't that many things that you can do? Is fuel not a large enough part of your overall budget that you need to make changes?



I'm already not doing anything.
Mostly I just stay home.
It's about 3 - 4 miles into town.
And 3 -4 miles back, natch.
And I go maybe 2 or 3 times a week lately since I've been selling stuff on Amazon.
But normally, I don't go at all - except on the weekend.

Bought an RV and haven't gone anywhere in it yet -- but planning a trip over the 4th.

Did go to Ashland to see some plays. Do that about once a year.
Otherwise...haven't had a real vacation in about 7 years now.

But I live (now) in a place that tourists love to come -- and are pea-green with envy when they find out that I live here. So... I guess it's kind of like being on vacation all the time, really -- with all the comforts of home.

And, if summer EVER gets here to the PNW.... I will enjoy sitting on my deck looking at my fab view which rivals many in Europe.

The poll didn't have a place to answer that we don't actually need to do anything because we are already not using very much gas.
