How far will you drive to save a few cents on gas?

How far are you willing to drive to find cheaper prices?

Gary Seelinger says he has his limits.

"I would go up to five miles probably," he said.

Others say they stay closer to home.

"I might travel a half a mile, but that's about it," said Sid Scott.

For some people it's not about driving for cheaper gas prices, but sitting.

"I wouldn't want to wait more than 15 or 20 minutes," said Carlos Vargas.

Vargas says he drives hundreds of miles a week and doesn't mind waiting in line to save money.

San Diego State University marking professor Michael Belch says it all comes down to priorities and your bank account.

"I think it comes down to your economic status," said Belch, "It comes down to how much time do I have?"

"How do you fight it other than walk?" asked Joe Iraci.
