In all honesty, the price rise for gasoline is very noticeable and it is also acceptable. It is ok if you have a good paying job (oil & gas industry, medium level management position, etc) or if your company is reimbursing you the travel costs (petrol included). But if you are already struggling with rent, food and telecommunication service expenses, you may be more motivated now to look for a better paying job, or at least one that has better benefits (for example : travel costs reimbursing).
