2* Looking ahead six months, how likely is it that you will be paying more for a gallon of gas than you are paying today?

3* If gas prices increased to $5 per gallon would that cause you to dramatically change your driving habits?

4* How concerned are you that growing tensions between the United States and Iran will cause a large increase in gas prices?
