gasoline is overrated

All anyone talks about anymore is the price of gas. And while yes it does suck that I spend $40 every 5 days to get myself back and forth to work, I don’t think expensive gas is an entirely bad thing. I see people riding bikes that probably never imagined they would ever ride again. I see full buses. I see people walking to grocery stores and corner markets, people staying home, people spending evenings in the yard with their kids. And I think maybe $4.00 a gallon for gas has finally gotten this country to slow the hell down.
