Gas Prices!

These days those words are enough to not only draw someone's attention, but also a great way to usually rile someone up. 'Mericans are pissed off that gas prices are soaring. Spoke to a buddy of mine JB in Arcata, up in NorCal last night and he told me that gas is $4.80 there right now. F that.
Hey folks, stop driving!
I know it isn't that easy for everyone. But our society has been built on the promise of cheap gas forever. Guess what? We fucked up and gas isn't going to stay cheap. All thouse houses out in the middle of nowhere? Yeah, they might be cheaper than a house in the city, but the gas you put in your car to get to and from will slowly choke your pocket book.
Here is a good story on the dichotomy of the bike. Maybe I linked it before.
