NBC NATIONAL NEWS — As gas prices rise, more and more drivers are changing how they drive and how much they hope into their car, according to a survey by AAA.
84 percent of those surveyed said they've already changed their habits.
Combining trips and errands was the most common reported cost-cutting change, with 60 percent of respondents making that adjustment.
The survey also found that rising gas prices has led nearly 16 percent of those surveyed to purchase or lease a more fuel-efficient vehicle.
