With gasoline prices hovering at $4 a gallon nationally, many Americans are making tough choices: scaling back summer vacations, driving less or ditching the car altogether, Associated Press reports.
An Associated Press-GfK poll shows the share of Americans who say increases in the price of gasoline will cause serious financial hardship in the next six months now tops 4 in 10.
Overall in the poll, 71 percent said rising prices will cause some hardship for them and their family, AP reports.
Some seniors are choosing a tank of gas over their prescriptions, AP writes.
Have high gas prices caused you to change your spending?
Have they made a joke of your New Year’s resolution to save more?
Are you cutting back plans for Memorial Day weekend or the summer?
How are you affected?
