High Gas Prices Have Some Reconsidering Summer Travel Plans

The travel season is upon us, and according to AAA, the demand for gasoline is high.
In Kentucky, the average price for a gallon is $2.62, still seven cents lower than the national average. But that's still 20 cents higher than just a month ago.
To compensate for the higher prices, AAA suggests choosing a destination closer to home, or a day trip.
Some people are looking for other ways to get around, such as riding a bike or walking.
AAA also says you should shop around to try to find the best gas price. They say you should be aware of both the state and national averages, and never buy gas above that price.

    As soon as the spring break and Easter is gone, down will come the gas prices. What other thing can it possible be.

    When the gas tank is empty you put gas in it! How much will we let gas prices dominate our lives? If someone wants to travel then budget to save for the price of gas.

    Hey Ben; it is "axis" of evil, not "axes." My guess is your axis of evil is an education.

    When gas prices rise, so does the cost of everything else, including groceries. The sad part is that no one's income is going up to offset the high cost of everything else. The rich keep getting richer and the poor - well...they suffer the worst.

    We fight what the President calls axes of evil in foreign countries,but the real axes of evil are the oil compaines and our leaders that let them get by with it.
