Funny you should ask. In about an hour, we are starting on a road (roeD?) trip to AZ, so.....no.
When did the LJW become a USA Today publication?
I'm more likely to consider the price of gas if my ride is short.
If I'm going to K.C. or Topeka, I have to drive, there's no other option. Same with Wichita or places of equal distance. But if I'm going across town and a bicycle ride is possible, then the price of gas and more importantly the weather, will play into my decision.
Then again, I apparently define a long trip as one to K.C. or Wichita while a poster above mentioned a trip to Arizona. How long is long?
The bathroom isn't all that far. I must first consider the cost of not making the trip . . .
Geez, I agree that we should make the switch to alternative energy but blaming soccer moms is off base. If you want to point a finger, point it at the airline industry and all the business and leisure travelers.
The Mrs wasn't feeling like cooking last evening so she sent me to town for KFC (yech!) The thirty mile round trip used 2.2 gallons of gas so the KFC for two totalled roughly $26
Well if we want the price of gases to go down... we need to use less. WE need to get off our American Individualistic attitude on "WE HAVE TO HAVE A CAR" and focus on passenger travel. Take a look at all the cars that go between Lawrence and KC. If we could put in high speed transit and take off at least 1000 cars off that would take off a minimum of 40,000 gallons of gas. Most likely a lot more. Yes we would have to plan the day a little different and SLOW down. As for peole saying. IT WON"T WORK.. can it. It would work. WE HAD the infratstructure and we cold put it back. Economy cars and alternate fuels are not the full answer. Electric cars (with current technology) is NOT the answer. Ever think of the toxic batteries? NOPE no one thinks about that. The ANSWER is rail service. Locomotives are more efficient then any car we have today or will have in the near future.
Eitherway, we want gase prices to go down.. we neeed to use less. Hybrid cars are not the answer nor is electric. The answer is high speed rail or any type of rail passanger service and car pooling. The problem is America, the HAVE NOW, FASTER not willing to work as a team and STUCK UP on individual rights (AKA I have my own car and won't car pool) is going to kill us.
well i be... I usually don't. the only time i consider the gas price, is when i don't want to take someone somewhere; then i complain about how much it will cost in gas to travel!!
Ya know, there's not a lot of perty between Liberal & Tucumcari. We staying in Albuquerque for the night. We drivin' a diesel car, prices running $3.94 to $4.19. Highest we paid today was $3.99. You can thank the free wifi at La Quinta for the update.
Hey, there's nothin' on the tv here at the inn & no place to go until the morning. And your last few days on the forum HAVE been pathetic.
Yes, we need to all use less fuel. That is sometimes had to do, if you have a life. It would help a lot if everybody would live where they worked, or at least somewhat close to where you work. I never have understood why some people are willing to drive 30 to 40 miles to work every day. It's a waste of time, fuel, and vehicle. It would also help if everybody got the heck out of my way! LOL
