Question of the Day

Gas pains…

Now that gas is obscene, how has it changed your transportation usage? Carpooling? Driving less? Using public transportation? Switching to a more fuel-efficient vehicle?

Actually, since I’ve moved further from my job, I’m driving more. I involuntarily switched to a slightly more fuel-efficient vehicle, since the Pontiac gets 22 mpg vs. the late Mustang’s 17 in town. Other than that, Miami’s public transportation system is notorious for its lack of convenience to places other than along US 1 and downtown, and it’s about to get even worse.
