With the cost of gasoline taking chunks out of our budgets these days, I was wondering what the patronage was doing to save pennies here and there.

I mean, the smokin’ hot shutterbug trophy wife and I have switched cars (I drive a Corolla and she has the minivan–paid off, but guzzles petroleum products made from fossil fuels) when her business or ballet taxi requires driving more than my commute to church.

I’ve noticed that teenagers are pooling money for gas and/or car pooling if a large group is going to the same place (they used to avoid this).

But, thus far, it hasn’t really changed our habits much.

So, what’re you folks doing to pinch pennies here and there?
