Gene Pearson, El Dorado Hills “Yes. I’€™m combining my trips whenever I can. I take less joy rides in the country.”


Jackie Kring, El Dorado Hills “€œI have a lot of friends and family in Roseville and I used to be over there all the time. Not so much any more.”

Jim Barroso, Paradise “€œNo. I support missionaries throughout the region and I’m going to keep doing it even if the gas gets a lot more expensive. It’€™s a responsibility thing, and I’€™m prepared to make sacrifices.”

Tom Garcia, Cameron Park “I don’€™t get to the Bay Area nearly as much when it gets this expensive. I have family there.”
