It depends on how you shop and what you buy.
For instance, if you tend to buy items locally produced from a store near your house, less gas is used than if you drive to the store and buy items produced in a different country, e.g. buying produce from Chile (assuming you don’t live there) vs. buying produce at a farmer’s market.
