Today I am grateful for falling gas prices. Here in Oregon we are now firmly below $2 per gallon in many places. Earlier this week I was able to fill the mini-van for $25. I have not done that for literally years. Because of where we live, driving is something one or both of us must do every day. Obviously DH must go to work but he is in a carpool a couple days a week. I must go pick up DS from preschool 3 days a week and get groceries, etc. We, like many, adjusted our driving habits when prices were at their highest but now I am quite thankful that putting gas in the car is not such a strain on the budget.
