My initial thought was that this would really hurt walk up sales, especially in a relatively low income metro area where most everyone drives. Then again, city busses are starting to brim with work commuters, despite the heat. But will that modification translate to "mere" entertainments, like a baseball game?
Also, to what extent have gas prices stifled each Friday's summer exodus north from the valley, and might some of those folks be more inclined to make it out to an air conditioned weekend game (or perhaps a movie) in town, than guzzle up to the Rim and back?
Both general observations and personal accounts of how gas prices may've influenced any recent entertainment choices are welcome.
