Americans Feeling Pinch of Higher Gas Prices
Americans Feeling Pinch of Higher Gas Prices: "A new CNN/USA Today/Gallup survey finds that higher gas prices are taking their toll on American consumers. Almost 6 in 10 say the higher prices are causing a hardship, the highest number on this measure in the past six years. Fifteen percent say the hardship is 'serious.' More than a third of Americans have cut back significantly on spending because of the higher prices, and about half have cut back significantly on the amount of driving they do. Lower-income Americans feel especially hard hit."
