The recent spike in gas prices has caused plenty of griping and pain at the pump, but a new survey finds that it’s going to take a much bigger jump before many people start rethinking their spending habits. A new Gallup poll found that, on average, gas prices would have to hit $5.30 before people would be forced to make significant cutbacks in other types of spending. The survey also found that, on average, Americans said they would be forced to make significant changes in how they lived their life only if gas hit $5.35 a gallon. Prices at the pump finally eased a couple of days ago, after 27 straight days of increases. A gallon of regular gas currently costs $3.76 on average, up from $3.52 a year ago, according to AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report.
