Driving to work this morning, I suddenly realized that I was about five miles away from completey running out of gas. This doesn't happen all that often. I tend to be pretty careful about checking how much I have left, and I usually don't like going under a quarter of the tank. I pulled into the closest gas station and proceeded to fill up my tank. All twenty-one gallons of it. At $4.11 a gallon. Wow.
I have spent the last four year in New England (where gas is certainly more expensive than in North Carolina), but I had never before filled up nearly my entire tank at one time. This got me thinking. I really only drive to and from work and occasionally around town to run basic errands or go to restaurants, but I'm under the impression that real estate agents are constantly driving around in order to show houses to clients.
So- How are rising gas prices affecting your business?
