I call BULLSHIT on this. It wouldn't matter if gas was $.01 or $10.00 @ gallon, I still have to drive to work, shop and do several other chores. I don't drive any more or less then when I was able to buy gas for $.89 @ gallon. The only difference is that it just costs me much more to do said chores.No surprise there. A half-century of enormous highway subsidies has made America more dependent on the automobile than anyone else. It's critically important to break that dependency by improving mass transit and densifying our cities so we aren't dependent on the Middle East's whims.
