Gas prices are on the rise again and motorists are trying to cope with the rise in fuel cost. The American Automobile Association recently surveyed over 1,000 adults last week as gas prices began to rise to find out how the price of gas would effect their driving habits.

“Combining trips and errands were the most commonly reported cost-cutting measures with 60 percent of the respondents reported to have already made this adjustment,” said Dave Carlson, Director of Public and Government Affairs for the organization.

Stephanie Smith rides her scooter to and from work, when the weather is good. She said it’s great for running around town and uses little gas.

He also said the rise in prices had nothing to do with supply and demand fundamentals as some people think; it has more to do with the uncertainty of the future supplies and speculative behavior of investors.
