My option is to panic. --- Just kidding... I have tried to consolidate my trips when possible and take shorter routes when available. Luckily, my job is less than 5 miles away each way, so I only have to fill up about once every two weeks, give or take, depending on how much other traveling I do throughout the week. My car is decent on gas. I see people everywhere are getting scooters which can get about 70-80 miles per gallon. That's one option I don't think I would consider. I might consider switching to a more fuel efficient and cheaper car if gas prices go even more drastically higher and get a car that would be cheaper with insurance prices as well... I really have not considered it too much, probably because I work so closely to home!
