High gas prices made you change your summer plans?

I was wondering how many of us are not having a 'normal' summer because of gas prices?

Here's my train of thought, you can follow it if you want.

Re: High gas prices made you change your summer plans?

Each year in the past I've taken my dogs on a long road trip (between 4-5,000 miles), not this year. Soon I'll be looking for alternatives but will likely not taking them more than 1,000 miles (roundtrip). Its just way too expensive.

We had to cancel our plans for our vacation this year. Just too much! But we may do something closer to home, I don't know!

Re: High gas prices made you change your summer plans?

My plans for this summer started over a year ago and was geared toward adding a puppy to the household this summer. Since we have such a variety of opportunities within a short drive window (I define "short" as 1-3 hrs max), there were no long drives (other than picking up the pup) in the plans.
