Pinch at the Pump

by frugalista on May 12, 2008

Pump_pain I read two interesting posts over the weekend about people using bicycles and public transportation as the preferred method of travel. I concur! If I didn’t need my car to chase down stories for work, I would get on the band wagon.

On my own, I walk a little bit more to the store/bank and I think about whether I REALLY need to take a drive to go some place. Still, I feel the "pinch at the pump." To fill up my ride it’s $53. When I first got the car, it was about $30 to fill it up. Meh.

Here are some fuel-efficient cars. I’m not in the market for a new ride, and I think the Prius’ are a little pricey for my budget. But then again, with more people considering fuel-efficient rides, maybe prices could go down. It would be nice if South Florida could get a public transportation system like Washington, D.C. or Chicago. I’m over vehicles.

What’s it like where you live? Do you own a car? How much does it take to fill up the tank? Are you taking public transportation more? Are you riding  your bike or walking more?  Tell me all about it.
