I drive a relatively “green” Subaru and after 30+ years in Texas have never owned a pickup, but still… the price of gas is giving me pause. Do any of you ride a bike (pedal or motor) to work? I live close enough I might survive the trip if one of the aforementioned monster trucks that prowl our roads doesn’t pick me off?
What do you think… should I pump up the ol’ bike tires, dodge traffic and drive to work under my own power? It’d probably take about 45 minutes each way. Sadly there is very little public transportation in our area so I don’t think that’s an option. How long is your commute? Have you thought about getting new wheels?
And what about your big all American roadtrip this summer? Still going? Maybe I should fit my bike with a child seat. OMG, pretty soon the price of gas will exceed the price of a small bottle of water, ounce for ounce. Hey, there’s an idea… a car that runs on water! Wait… don’t they already have one of those?
Can you run a car on Starbucks coffee? That would be cheaper, and think how perky your car would be! Anyway, you can read my post on the Best New Family Cars for 2012 to see some of the ones we are looking at. I’d love your advice on what I should do!
What do you drive?
