Gas pains aren't fatal

-A A +A
By Carolyn Risner

Judging from the amount of traffic on I-75 this past weekend, motorists are oblivious to the fact that gasoline isthisclose to being $4 a gallon.

Or perhaps those motorists are like me.

They know that we are a nation that moves on four wheels-or 18-and to get from Point A to Point B, you have to get in a motorized vehicle and drive, whether you want to pay the price at the pump or not.

Unfortunately, we here in Levy County are not privy to bus routes or subways and because it's a vast county in terms of land area, bicycling or walking is not conducive to getting your errands done.

The night before I moved to Florida, three years ago this coming June, I paid $2.14 a gallon for gasoline.

When I arrived in Chiefland the next day, gas here was $2.37. I wondered then how I would make it on my weekly budget.

I am still wondering.

Gas is now $1.50 more than it was then-just shy of being a 64 percent increase, and it appears there's no end in sight.
