Higher gas prices

I just finished watching a report on Channel 5 news on the record gas prices this week. They listed a bunch of things that you can do to save money on gas. Standard stuff: inflate tires, change your air filter, &c.

Oddly, they neglected to mention the easiest way to save money on gas. Drive less.

No doubt that there's a lot of driving that many of us have to do. (Even the NS&S family is known to get into the car on occasion.) But, few of us are down to necessity-only trips.

I am sure I am in the minority, but I thing higher gas prices are a good thing.

It will stimulate the purchase of more fuel efficient cars, put an emphasis on denser more urban areas, stimulate the development of alternative fuels, and make public transportation more useful.
