COLUMN: These are the times that try driver's souls
When gas was $3.13 per gallon, I drove my four kids on day trips every week during the summer.
When gas was $3.49 per gallon, I would swear under my breath because I didn't fill up my tank the day before when it was 10 cents cheaper.
When gas was $3.79 per gallon, I stopped being Mom Taxi and kicked my kids to the curb. After all, I had to walk to school when I was their age (yes, uphill both ways).
