“It hasn’t so far. I spent a ton traveling to the OSU game, and it didn’t stop me. So I don’t think it will affect my plans. I hate spending so much though.”

“No, because my parents pay for my gas. But even if I had to pay for it, I’m going to go where I’m going to go regardless of the cost.”

"I would say so. I'm going home first and then riding with my parents to my grandma's house, because it would be too expensive to drive my car."

Seems like this might have been a worthwhile plan to consider regardless of the price of gas.

oooooooo gootsie, wave at me on camera, m'kay?? i'll be watchin' from home and probably going hoarse screamin' and carryin' on!!!

as for the question...umm, i reckon if ya'd open windows on the ride it would increase the chances that gas won't affect my holiday travel plans.

I am unsure of proper fuel saving etiquette. Instead of just crashing the neighbor's thanksgiving dinner... Should I call and ask to be picked up? They killed and dressed the fat turkey this weekend.

Well...

Not really, because we purchased our airline tickets months ago. Long before the hike in air travel due to rising fuel costs.

No, but I may do more of my travelling using astral projection. I can still see the people and places, even if I can't fully interact with them.
