Gas pprces here are nearing their record highs of several years ago, and now, after a lot of non-mumbling, folks are feeling the punch:
Will the neat meteoric rise in the price of fuel cause adjustments to your travel plans?
I may do more domestic travel by car, as the "Fuel surcharges" are going to be much worse on airlines. As an optimist, I think it is going to really get much worse. Hope I am wrong.
Me too--don;t forget your Key West suggestions for me
It's in the works! Will have tonight.
I will continue to visit family in spite of a failed national energy policy, but vacations per se will become rare to non existent. Good thing for my wife and I, we both enjoy very much visiting our parents, children and of course that first grandson.
Great question, by the way.
My pleasure from the land of the nation's highest gas prices and most inefficient state
We try to be as economic as we can with fuel already, so we can't do much more, other than not go on some vacations on planes, that we had planned to go. We might put those off if we knew time wasn't a factor. I figure we only have so many vacations left in our pocketbooks and our aging bodies, and I don't want to miss any of them!
We can always adjust--that's my motto
I prefer to "adjust" on my own terms, not those dictated by people motivated by power and greed!
That would be a long list, husker
I'm not going to let someone or some group who continue to try and force a failed (miserably, by the way) energy policy on us to stop me from enjoying my time traveling....be it by air, car or time machine. Just returned from a wonderful drive to the Tampa, Clearwater and Orlando areas visiting family.
tef -- I agree with that sentiment, but my wallet is only so thick. We have already started to cut back on travel, except as I mentioned earlier our trips now consists primarily of visiting family out of state. And our price at the pump isn't nearly what some others are paying.
The USA's number one export is.....oil! Who'da figured that one out?
