Gas Prices, Yikes!

These gas prices are out of sight and I'm sure the high prices are hitting wallets and budgets pretty hard. I noticed over the past weekend that many of my neighbors were home which may not be any coincidence with the high gas prices, but I imagine that's one reason. We all have to drive to jobs, school, errands, and sporting practices as we move along in our lives. Here are some frugal ways to help save money on gas now:

--->Check with co-workers for carpooling, see who lives nearby
--->Use public transportation if it's convenient in your area
--->Coordinate errands to avoid driving too far out of the way
--->Fill the gas tank up or halfway when you spot a good price

Hang in there and hopefully the gas prices will start to go down soon. In the meantime, brown bag lunch even more :-)
