Morning Poll: Driving More Thanks to Lower Gas Prices?

Gas prices at the BP station at the corner of Four Mile Run Drive and Walter Reed DriveGas prices around Arlington are dropping as the price of crude oil continues to fall.

The price of a gallon of regular gasoline at the BP station, pictured here, has dropped to $1.91 from $1.97 just last month.

It’s tied for second-lowest price in the county, according to GasBuddy.com, with only Arlington Auto Service on Columbia Pike cheaper, at $1.83 per gallon.

With gas prices continuing to drop to levels reminiscent of the 1990s and, more recently, depths of the recession, do you find yourself driving more?
