I could only see quitting work if it was a minimum wage job.
Thats what Id say too. You can get a minimum wage job just about anywhere.

There are other options too, depending on the job. Some employers are letting employees work four 10 hour days instead of five 8 hour days. Cuts gas cost by 20%. Others are starting to telecommute more. Others have been carpooling more. One could even crash at a local buddys place sometimes to save most of a trip. Even ecodriving helps, compared to before I joined here, Im spending a dollar less a day on gas, which is like a free trip to work and back every week and a half.

Winter daily driver, parked most days right now

Summer daily driver
