Poll says gas prices reducing driving

Two out of three people answering an online poll said gasoline is already pricey enough to curb their driving.

“How high will gasoline prices have to get to make you significantly reduce your driving?” the three-day poll asked at

Of 140 respondents, 95 (67.9 percent) chose the option “It’s happened already.” Three said the price would have to reach $3.25 a gallon; eight said $3.50; two said $3.75; 17 said $4; and 15 said $4.25 or higher.

The unscientific poll ended Monday.
