I do, no, but would be nice though. People I work with want to kill each other on a daily basis, imagine having to car pool. Someone isn't making it in.

I wish that there was someone I could carpool with. The town in Pennyslvania that I am from had a large GE plant and they offered vans for employees to use to carpool with. They all pitched in on gas ! What a great idea !

Drive by myself. Work schedule is irregular and therefore does not allow for carpooling.

I'm wondering why anyone who doesn't drive to work or school is monitoring a gas prices web site??? You shouldn't be driving enough to care!

As for carpools, if you have a job that allows you to go in and leave the same time every day, thank your lucky stars! I never know from day to day when I'll get to work and when I'll manage to leave. My company supported van pools until they laid off most of the riders.

Two of us are in the car; therefore, we can use the contraflow lanes.

It is sometimes hard to carpool. If you have someone who is late all the time it makes it even tougher, even if you work the same shift

I might be interested in car pooling if the government gave me the incentives they give public transportation. It seems I can afford my car, I can't afford public transit which I don't use.

No, its hard to find someone with the same destination AND hours.
I do share rides once in a while, but not on a regular basis.
