Hi Vintage! Yeah, gas is one of those things. It costs too much, but we need it to get around. It's really my hardest thing to budget. If I had kids I don't know how I'd deal with it. And yes, it is too hot to walk right now - you don't want to be dealing with heat exhaustion!

For me, i try to drive as little as possible, combine errands, walk when I can (when not over 100 degrees out - yuck), try to conserve the gas while driving (experimenting with hypermiling)...and stay at home a lot.

I also have a little errand trailer set up for my bike, but it is also too hot to be cycling!

Today I stayed home, like I do a lot, so I spent nothing. It's fun to work on eating up my perishable foods, instead of buying more all the time.
