Will rising gas prices give people an incentive to use public transportation?
Asked at Hastings, 1900 W. 23rd St. on March 5, 2005
“Somehow I kind of doubt it. Most people pay whatever gas costs so they don’t have to bother with riding the bus.”
“No, I don’t think it will affect people. I live out in the country and I’m pretty sure I’m not going to think twice.”
“I doubt it very seriously. People are generally lazy these days. They don’t even want to walk from their house to the bus stop.”
“No, I don’t think so. It would probably have to get up to about $3 a gallon before people would start using it.”
