Question:
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.”

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.”

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.”
