It's a realuty of today's rising gasoline prices. Even at $2 a gallon, my husband and I were already making choices about what was worth the drive and what was not.
But there are some things, even with our strained budget, that are still worth the drive at $4 a gallon.
My short list:
- My amazing endocrinologist, 40 miles away. There's no one in the metro like her, and I refuse to can her because of the drive.
- Along the same lines, my new PCP, so I can get access. Hopefully, I won't have to see either of them often.
- On rare occasions, a drive to what my toddler has dubbed "the horse farmer's market" (the organic year-round farmers market at Traders Point Creamery. Have seen plenty of cows and chickens, but no horses.)
- About as rarely, a drive to Fresh Market to stock up on bulk goods such as dried fruits and spices.
What is worth the drive for you?
