Do gas prices impact your daily life?
Will gas prices have an impact on your vacation plans?
Will you drive less or consider a more efficient vehicle?

No not really.I try to be a bit more aware about my driving habits and group more stuff together rather than running all over the place.I would get better gas mileage if I could keep my foot out of it .

They only impact my life when everyone around me bitches about it.

No. I fly.

No. Still going to drive the Armada and its 14-mpg efficiency.

I did the math on getting new (more efficient) vehicles and you never get your money back - even at $5.00 per gallon. Insurance and the RIDICULOUS price of a new car make it impossible to make the numbers work. So, unless you just have to have a new car that smells good, keep the old one.

Let's just say I drive trucks with at least 8 cylinders...maybe more. :) I will keep them until the wheels rust off.

One of my trucks/SUV's gets about 9-11mpg. :) ....but it has a 44 gallon tank.

-Yes, my daily commute is 60+ miles round trip...6 days a wekk is 360+ miles.
-Indirectly yes, weekly fuel expense greatly impacts my disposable income.
-I drive a giant brick(and I love it),8mpg on a good day. As much as I hate it, a fuel efficient vehicle is in the near future....but I'm still not driving a fuckin' Prius.

I would drive an elec car if there was a place to make it work or if they got more than 300 miles on a charge. IMO we ned to go to a natural gas/elec engine. Don't know shit about any of it but I do understand commodities and law of supply and demand. Get me from A to B asap is all I need.
