$3.80. $3.90. $4. $4.10. $4.27. And up and up and up.
Gas prices are soaring faster than the August-like temperatures we've seen over the past few days, and there's no end in sight for the increases.
The record-setting prices are a frustration to just about everyone, but a growing number of drivers are starting to do something in response to the growing cost of fuel.
Some drivers are trading in their gas guzzlers for hybrids and other fuel-efficient vehicles. Others are turning to car-pooling or riding a bicycle to help cut down their weekly gas bill. Many are beginning to take the bus or Metro Rail.
And a few are changing their entire driving habits, shopping only at the cheapest gas stations and militantly combining trips and slowing down while on the highway.
We'd like to hear what you are doing in response to high gas prices. Have you changed your routine at all? Have you started leaving your car at home more often?
And do you think any of this will make a difference in the price at the pump?
