As the price of gas hovers around $3 per gallon in many states, people everywhere are starting to wonder about their future. It doesn't help that oil industry analysts are predicting gas prices will remain high for months and maybe for years.

Suddenly, commuting to your job is looking like a major investment that's already a big hit on your budget.

Americans use way too much energy including gas on daily basis. Good news is that, if you realize that and do not follow the rest of the society, you can live a good life. You can even save a fair amount of money every month. Don't be one of Sheeple ...

It's quite amazing how much gas people spend on commuting to and from work all the time. For some reason traffic and commuting costs disgust me, so I just walk and/or bus it to work. But for some, if they live farther away, it's their only choice besides moving. It's definitley a price to pay. Commuting definitley tacks on a couple of extra hours in your already full day's of work.

I am a member of a small business and we really enjoy working from home now. In addition to the reducing gas and maintenance costs required by commuting, there are other savings like:

-no need to dry-clean clothes unnecessarily (2.50 a day=~$50 month)
-no parking fees
-the company pays for our home internet lines- so that is about $40 a month (that they would have paid anyways)
-no heat/ac/maintenance for a company building (so they can pay a nice stipend for a home office)
-plus, rather than wasting 30-45 minutes a day commuting, we can get right to work in the mornings.

It's not for everyone- but working from home definitely beats being stuck in traffic twice a day, five days a week, 50 weeks a year...
