Gas prices driving Americans to change lifestyle, driving habits

During the period of June 23-27, 1,002 adults in the United States participated in the survey. AAA survey finds that Americans have changed their driving habits in an effort to offset rising gasoline prices.

Nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults, or 64 percent, have changed their driving habits or lifestyle since March, with 23 percent making significant changes. Drive less, combine errands, and reduce errands and shopping to offset spiraling gas prices.

A survey revealed that 29 percent of motorists had to postpone vacations this year due to the fluctuating gas prices, which have not only affected how Americans drive across the country but also their future travel plans.

As of July 27, AAA has reported that national average gas prices stand at $4.302 per gallon, up from $3.158 this time last year, but down from the record high of $5.016 on June 14.
