Town Talk

A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues

Question of the Week:

“Have you changed your driving habits due to the price of gas, and what do you imagine the price per gallon will be by the end of the year?”


“I imagine that the price of gas will go up to $5 a gallon by the end of the year. My family tries to stick to using one car whenever possible. We do mostly local driving.”

Elizabeth Roth, Montgomery Township

“I think that the price of gas is just going to go up and up, and by the end of the year it will be $6 a gallon. I think that it is despicable, what’s going on. My husband drives me to the train station every day, and every time we pass a gas station we gasp at the prices. We haven’t changed our driving habits, but we have scowls on our faces.”

Lily Israel, Willow Street

“I haven’t changed my habits and I think that it will be $5 a gallon.”

Richard Hirsch, Staten Island, N.Y.


“I haven’t changed my habits yet, but I may as time goes on and the expenses continue to go up. By the end of this year I expect gas to be $4.80 a gallon.”

Howard Pohl, Lydenhurst, N.Y.

“I am a conservative driver after many years of younger, non-conservative driving, so I am more mindful of my conservatism since the gas prices have gone up. I have noticed, though, that everyone else doesn’t seem to be. I hope that the price doesn’t go to $4.75 a gallon by the end of the year.”

Ted Horodynsky, Carter Road
