According to Harris Interactive, higher gas prices have caused the majority of Americans to cut back on a range of products and services. The poll, which surveyed 2,184 adults online in mid-May, finds that 51 percent of Americans have limited spending on other items in order to pay for gas.
An even higher pecentage (65) of families earning an annual income of $35,000 or less have had to cut back. To be able to put money in the tank, most Americans have had to sacrifice fuel for their bodies, as groceries, and dining out are the things cut.
However, less necessary items—luxury items and movies—are all among the least likely to be sacrificed. Know anywhere else where this sounds familiar?
