Feeling the Pinch

By
Real Estate Agent with TOVIJE Enterprises, Inc.

In the August REALTOR Magazine there is an article entitled "Feeling the Pinch" about how gas prices are affecting REALTORS.  The story tells of agents who previously purchased HUMMERS or other gas guzzlers over the past few years.  Now that gas prices are high, many of them (the vehicles) are sitting in garages forsaken for other more gas economical rides.  I thought this story was especially interesting because just a few days ago, a similar tale was being told in our office. It seems that at least 3 HUMMER driving REALTORS in our town have theirs for sale.  Anybody else out there "Feeling the Pinch" this way?

By the way, unleaded gas in our area is currently $2.89gal.

Since my Toyota Prius hybrid gets around 50 MPG I haven't been feeling the pinch too hard. ;-)

I also qualify for a $3150 tax credit next April 15th; that's like getting that amount in a rebate or discount.
