My husband and I both work for the same state agency. We were commuting 140 miles a day round trip. We took the commuter bus because we could not afford to commute by car.
However, the price of gas is bound to increase the price of all transportation, including public. So, we decided to move closer to work.
We now commute 4 miles a day to work. The cost of our housing is considerably higher now but now we only fill our gas tanks once a month and avoid a three-hour round-trip daily commute. Therefore, we have decided to sell one of our cars.
The problem now is that with the economy in such bad shape overall, it seems no one is buying high-ticket items. So, until we get rid of at least one car payment, we won't realize any savings from our move.NEXT: Rob Neff: Not seeing any change
