I'm curious - who's staying home this summer because of gas prices?
Have you changed anything about your lifestyle because of them?
Back when the price first went over $2 a gallon, we stopped going places. Our church is sort of halfway between home and the stores, so we would save our shopping trips for Sundays and Wednesdays. All the while, we waited for the prices to go back down.
We're still following that same routine. Every now and then, we might go to the store on a Friday if we're out of something, but generally we don't just hop into the car and drive without thinking long and hard about it.
Next weekend, one of my cousins is having a big wedding reception on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The weekend after that, another cousin is having a big going-away party in the same town before she moves to Texas. I'm going to have to send regrets to the latter, because driving down there just costs too much.
So if we go anywhere this summer, it will be like our recent trip to New York - part of a business trip of Hubby's for which we tag along. He might be going to Memphis later this year. That would be fun. But other than that, we've got to learn to love it at home.
