Attitudes Changing Toward Gas Prices

Posted: Updated:

Gas prices are finally dropping and you may be feeling some relief, but these same prices would've been considered outrageous just a few years ago. So are driver's attitudes changing?

The value of the fuel streaming from the nozzle into the gas tank has been changing more rapidly than the weather lately, and drivers aren't too happy about it. But over the years, we've created a new normal, getting comfortable paying more and more at the gas pump.

While $3.99 a gallon once seemed like a criminally high price to pay, some drivers now look at it with a sense of relief -- and while we may threaten to drive less, take mass transit, or carpool, more often than not we just fill our tanks, grumble, and watch the roller coaster ride we call gas prices.
