Gas Prices On Minds Of Most
LABELLE, FL. -- Rising gas prices are affecting more than the family budget. According to news from Florida State University a study has found that more pain at the pump results in more employee stress on the job.
Survey respondents said gas prices were foremost on their mind, with 52% saying that they have reconsidered taking vacations or other recreational activities; 45% have had to cut back on debt-reduction payments, such as credit card payments; and nearly 30% considered the consequences of going without basics including food, clothing and medicine.
In addition, many employees report that gas prices rank as the number one water-cooler discussion topic, ahead of family, sports or work.
