Auburn man: save on gas by shopping locally

In last Wednesday’s edition of the Auburn Reporter, a lot of frustration was showing with the price of gas and cutting back.

In last Wednesday’s edition of the Auburn Reporter, a lot of frustration was showing with the price of gas and cutting back.

We, too, have not made a trip to see relatives and friends in Yakima yet and miss seeing our grandchild in Yelm.

We have tried to shop in Auburn when we can. But in the past, sometimes it was easier to go elsewhere for things we needed. Now, we focus on doing our shopping in Auburn, eating out in Auburn, as well as doing business in town. This is a win-win situation. It is helping us cut down on gas, and also the sales tax is helping the city pay for operations and ways to clean up and improve our roads.

This all is helping us conserve to get ready to take that trip to Yakima and Yelm and not feel too guilty because we haven’t driven all over the county before hand, except for work.

So, ease up on some of your anxiety. Before you get in the car, think about, “Can I get it in Auburn?”
