    Default Have Gas Prices Changed Your Driving Habits?

    I drive much less because of the high gas prices. How have gas prices affected you?

    yes, I skipped needless trips. Fuel prices keep on getting ( €1,50 per liter) worse over here. I'am thinking of converting the car to LPG.

    Sounds like it's the perfect solution. If you want to be left alone, let her shop at Walmart. At least she's not shopping nieman marcus.

    Shaving kit...what a bargain at only $100.00 before shipping

    I only use my vehicle when I need to. I walk the 2 blocks to Wally World instead of drive there unless I need a lot of things.

    Seeing we have so many vehicles on the road and off I just consolidate trips to the vehicle that will do the job.

    The Fiero has always been a grocery getter and errand car.

    The Burb is more of a tow/feed/ family car.

    The full size Ford vans are just used to get hay, 30 square bales at a time, rain or shine.

    The plow truck is just for plowing and fencing so that really hasn’t seen much use at all lately,

    Now the golf cart has gotten a lot of use lately, we use that to haul meals around for the animals on the farm and getting to and from garden spots.

    But I have considered using it to get to Wally World, we are less than a ¼ mile from the back entrance. All I would have to do is register it as an ATV and it would be legal to do that.

    Thats what I'm talkin' bout! You can have my little trailer for the back of it. I'm done fooling around with it.
