High Gas Prices
Don’s gas gauge is almost on empty. He needs to fill his tank. He drives his car to the gas station. The sign reads $2.99 a gallon. These high gas prices have been hard on Don’s wallet. Much of his money is spent on gas.
The high price of gas has caused him to have less money for other things. He has less money for food. He has less money for clothes. He has less money for seeing movies and going out to eat. Don has had to watch his spending more closely.
He has tried to conserve gas. He tries to carpool with others to work. He waits to go shopping until he has a long list of items on his shopping list. He used to drive to the store for just one or two things.
Don has thought of other ways to get places without using his car. He is now riding his bike more. He is also doing more walking. The higher gas prices may have hurt Don’s wallet, but they have helped his health!
