Gas prices are hurting lots of people. I sell used cars and have people coming into my lot every day wanting to get a more gas efficient vehicle. Not surprisingly, the prices at auction on gas guzzlers has dropped dramatically.
The fear of $5 gas is real. Americans will have to tighten their belts and decide what their priorities are. Casually getting into a car and taking a drive is something many people will have to really think about. For people who have little expendable cash available now, high gas prices are painful.
