Are You Driving Less Because of the High Gas Prices?

I'm not driving less because I don't drive. My assistants, however, are. My one assistant had to stop working for me because it costs more than she would make in an hour to drive from her house to my house. She only worked seven hours a week, anyway, and that's only $70. So she'd be making $60 a week plus driving an hour. Can anyone say, "Not worth it"? My other assistant says that she's only going to drive between my house, her house, and her boyfriend's house, which is about a 5 mile radius. I guess the gas prices really are affecting people. I hope that more people start using mass transit like I do, and maybe this will have a positive effect on the environment.

I still go to the same places, but I try to save on gas by going slower. I read somewhere that as long I keep my speed below 60 kph (I think), then the amount of gas I use up will be less than if I speed up. I hope the gas prices in my area will go down as well. I have heard news that it will continue to go up but I'm praying that it doesn't.
