High gas prices have employees moving closer to their workplaces

When gas hit over $4 a gallon, for some it was time to move.  Louisville-area Realtors are seeing more customers moving away from outlying areas and closer to their workplaces.

High gas prices are affecting everybody, and that has some people packing their bags to move.

For Danielle Waller and her son Danny, that meant it was time for their family to look for a new place to live.  She calls current gas prices "a breaking point," and believes they will only go higher.  She says she's "just really tired of the high gas prices," and that it's time to move from her current location, over twenty miles away from work, to something more convenient.

Realtors like Joe Hampton say houses inside the Gene Snyder Freeway are often selling faster than those on the outside.  He says areas where you can bike, bus, or walk to work are selling.

With so many choices out there, Waller already knows the areas she'd like to live in -- something centally located such as Hikes Point or Jeffersontown.

And, Realtors say there's always a high demand to live in the Highlands and St. Matthews.
