Has fuel costs changed your car usage?

As I'm sure we all know, fuel is currently very expensive (and somehow I don't think it's going to come downeither!). But I'm noticing that althought through the day the roads are just as congested as they always are, through the evening they seem to be a lot quieter. Are you using your vehicle significantly less for personal/leisure reasons because of higher running costs, or am I just seeing a 'blip' in car usage?

No links, BTW, just personal observation. And has anyone else noticed this?

I changed my attitude towards car useage, and in particular, how far I was willing to commute, during the first oil crisis and I can assure you that I am not claiming any exceptional foresight. Am currently reading Jeff Rubin's book and I don't consider his claims about our use of oil in the near future to be in any way dramatic.
