We complain when gas prices are $2.74 a gallon and then when they rise to over $3 a gallon we're asking for them to be $2.74 again. I don't like paying more money for gas, but I don't have a choice and neither does anyone else. The only other choice people have is to ride a bicycle or walk.
We complain about gas prices, but what are we doing to make a difference? How many of us will drive from one gas station to the next until we can find one that is reasonably cheaper than others? We only save a few pennies and use up more gasoline that was in our vehicle. So why are we complaining about gas prices when we are not trying to save gas and help our economy? Companies will continue to raise prices as long as there is a demand. So why complain about something we are not helping to change?
Why not put our complaining to use and think of ways that we can lessen the amount of gas we use? If we cut back on the amount of time we spend driving around we may see a difference in the amount of times we have to fill up.
