Question: Do you think the increase in gas prices from a year ago will affect your summer travel plans?
Do you think the increase in gas prices from a year ago will affect your summer travel plans?
|“Not really. I use the buses and trains mostly. But I feel bad for the people who drive. Why spend more when you can spend less? Too many arguments going on between America and oil-producing countries. We fight with them, then we want their oil. So they charge us.”
Que Gibson, Downtown Brooklyn
“No, it won’t affect my summer plans. I’ll go where I want, anyway. Plus, I don’t think raising gas prices are a problem. The problem is that cars are becoming so expensive, costing six and seven times what they used to.”
Steve Markowitz, Canarsie
“Yes, it’s ridiculous. It costs something like $2.60 a gallon. My friend lives in California and it’s going up to $3.00 there. It’s really ridiculous. They have a reserve that they could use. But because of politics they don’t use it. So, we the consumer suffer.”
Howard Kucine, Starrett City
“Yes, I think it will. It costs a lot of money to travel nowadays, especially with the gas prices what they are.”
Fran Vaccaro, Canarsie
