Could sticker shock at the pump convince families to downsize their ride?
It looks like you may want to trade in your minivan for a Miata. CNN reports that gasoline prices have risen to an all-time high. According to a recent survey conducted by AAA, the average price of regular gas rose overnight to $3.24 a gallon, and some stations across the country are charging more than $4 per gallon! That means that a fill-up could cost you at least $60-70 at the gas pump.
