OT: gas

so how many of you are changing your drving habits now that gas is so expensive, and only will get worse. i wont drive 65 anymore, only 55, it's not worth the extra 5 mins i get there early.

my hsuband and I only have one car which is nice cause we only have to fill up one car, but at the same time we fill up more often cause that one car has to get us everywhere. I live in a city with bad bad bad public transportation, but I might have to start looking into it if the prices reaches $3.50 in my area.

Definitely making me think twice about the weekend excursions in the car. On a positive note, the market does work over the long run. Demand will lead to supply in terms of more fuel efficient vehicles (hybrid technology for SUV's is a great thing) new sources of fuel. Nuclear power is making a comeback (the founder of Greenpeace recent admitted we need to revisit nuclear power), solar technology is starting to thrive in the market place (look up the stock ticker ESLR)

So, yeah, in an ironic sense i'm optimistic. We just need to start ignoring the nut in Iran who seems to be talking crazy talk to get the price of oil up. Because the crazier he talks, the higher gas goes.

Of course....the crazier the nut in the white house talks, the higher the price of gas gets.........perhaps we should get consider fixing the problem at home first........

yep - it's the driving around town that we're cutting out. Combining trips, walking to the coffee shop or the bookstore and running errands on the way home instead of making a second trip in the evening. That's what really sucks the gas. Driving to our fave trailhead? Definitely worth it!

I'm so glad we live in an older neighbor that was zoned for mixed commercial and residential use. We don't HAVE to drive our car in order to get to the store or a restaurant. Although we often do in order to cut down on the number of trips (hard to carry a week's worth of groceries home on foot). I feel for those who have no practical alternative to a car in order to purchase the basic necessities of life.
