I was just wondering how evryone is handling the high gas prices. They are really hurting me. I dont make a lot and drive about 27 milesone one way to work. I know gas prices have been very high in other places of the world for a long time. We in the US dont have access to mass transit the same way. We are very limited, and everything is stretchd out to get to. I heard oil prices went down today, but not enough. How are you doing?

Sory that is not an option for me.. I am terrfied of motor bikes or motor cycles. They are good on milage but I feel very dangerous. We have very cold winters so wouldnt be able to use it then anyway. Also this summer has been very, very rainy. Thank you for responding

Ok so your scared of riding motorcycles then the next best way would be to use public transport as it is far cheaper than using your own car.

Yes, the gas prices are affecting me too. I am disabled and no longer work, so it is just the running back and fort to doctors, therapy and the stores that bother me.Food, clothing and everything is going up also because of the increase of the gas prices.

Thank you for your comment. Everything is going up eccept my income. I dont see any relief from the government. I wish I knew he answer, or at least part of it. Good luck. When I do have t go out for things I plan it all out so I do a big circle so that I am not running back and forth.

hmmmm..lucky in China the gas price is only half of it in usa..the bad news is the gas prices will get higher,and good news is there are many fuel-cell powered automobiles today.i guess this kind of car is the best choice.

We really need much more fuel eficient cars with out huge price tags on them. I cant believe the auto companys werent better prepared for this. I am not really aware of what fuel celled cars are. If we have the here there arent too many of them.
