[quote=Ohvoy;518366][quote=newguy888;518361]No I believe when they pull up and it takes 60 dollars to fill the civic they will use less. Sure you gotta get to work, but watch how many people start taking a sick day a week!! Look 4 dollars a gallon is a bummer for most.
"Bummer" isn't exactly the word I'll be using if gas hits $4 a gallon....
Sick days ... perhaps, though at my place of employment that would only get me by for 10 weeks....
I suppose the ideas could dovetail: If filling up the gas tank means folks don't have the $$$ to go to the mall, or out to eat, then they won't be driving.
It will be called a major recession.
Bigtime. Something that we have not seen in a good while.
One Hurricane and you think things are bad now. remember katrina? It tore a new arsehole in the gulf oil fields!!
Prices went to 3+ a gallon. Can you imagine what would happen with prices at say 3.55 and a big storm heads to the gulf??
