How Would $8 Gas Change You?
I'm working on an article idea and I'm curious about how $200/barrel oil and a rise in gas prices to around $8/gallon would change your habits?
I drive a Honda Civic, work from home and rarely go places I can't carpool so I am an anomaly. The 200 miles or so I drive every month isn't going to change with $8 gas but I think it would have a dramatic impact on most people.
I'll throw out a few options I've considered:
- Would you carpool more?
- Would you cancel a road trip?
- Would you consider selling a vehicle and using a service like Zipcar?
- Would you consider purchasing an electric car?
- Would you start walking/biking more regularly?
Let me know what changes you would make in my very unscientific way of researching this topic.
