I have a car just sitting there in case of an emergency, pretty much as a tool on standby which will not be used unless I absolutely need to use
I listen to people complaining about the price of gas nearly everywhere I go and they never really can come up with a way of remedying the situation
without making excuses to not fix things.
Some people have to commute long distances to work but that was a choice for most people when fuel prices were lower, maybe wages were higher in a
relative sense in the beginning, maybe there was too little consideration given to the potentials for change or alternatives to driving.
I see a lot of this as being contrived, like a mass transit system which is only marginally effective in most cities, non-existent outside of
cities...Nothing like a captive market to those selling you stuff at whatever price they deem fair.
I see a lot of silly people with diabetes who would benefit from just riding their bicycle instead of sitting in their cars doing what amounts to
nothing at all and complaining about controlling their glucose levels.
There is no fixing any of this as long as people equate being able to drive a car with all of the added expense and insurance to something like
I'll just ride my bicycle as soon as this whiskey hangover lets up, riding today didn't help it much.
Ugggghhh, gotta actually be nicer to myself on days off....
