As reported on Yahoo. • With gas prices for her SUV topping $100 a week, Alicia Agugliaro is trying to save money by packing her own lunches, diet soft drink and coffee to take to work at Liberty Travel, a travel agency based in Ramsey, N.J. She estimates that she saves enough to pay about a third of her gas bill by cutting back. She drives 65 miles one way. "I look like a bag lady when I leave in the morning, but it's what you have to do," says Agugliaro, 29. "It's costing so much in gas that I was looking for other ways I can save money." The disturbing thing is that none of the other people made any real headway either. People choose to eat less, quit their job, or carpool with others instead of driving a fuel efficient car. Stupid. I would wish that a giant meteor would crush them all, but then there would be no one left to laugh at.
