Gas prices eased a little this week. In Texas, the average is around $2.87 with the lowest amount in Corpus Christi at $2.75 a gallon. The national average was down $0.06 to $2.98.
I still don't think that gas prices effect where people buy houses. We have the DART train that runs through parts of the Dallas area, and I haven't really noticed the parking lots more full (fuller) than usual. People in Dallas love their cars. They like to show off their cars. They're not going to park their nice, expensive car in a parking lot to take a train to work. How would they be able to volunteer to drive to lunch and have everyone ohhh and ahhh about their car?
With the Kroger grocery card, I get $0.10 off per gallon, so I paid $2.76 last time I filled up!
