I've been laid off so with no cash flow I don't care if gas hits $0.30 a gallon I 'll still see it as a large expense.

Sorry, you'll never see that in NC. I just checked, the state fuel tax for NC appears to be 30.15 cents/gal. Add federal and any local fuel taxes on top of that and even if the rest of the region goes under $1/gal I don't think NC will.

It's US$2.50 per US gallon up here on Vancouver Island BC. Even if it was half that, I would still go for decent FE. It's a matter of pride and keeping the CO2 footprint as low as possible. Only the lemmings will become fuel spendthrifts

Habits for driving haven't changed much, save the whole "rally" driving on snow now. That drops it by 1.5mpg or so. I did just buy a 4wd sonoma, but its for offroad things, so FE wasn't really a consideration. skid plates and the right gearing mattered more.

Does anyone here actually believe that cheap gas is going to last? I sure don't.

Paying about $4.12 over here in Japan and LOVING it! Much better than the $7-8 gas we were seeing a couple months ago.

Not that I drive much these days anyways. The occasional trip to the wife's parents house. Anything else is easily bikeable.
