Gasoline costing $4 per gallon is enough of an expenditure to make any form of public transportation seem more appealing than spending 20 bucks on a round-trip excursion downtown. With gas prices rising not only to record-breaking rates, but also at high speed, one may begin to wonder how much more consumers will take before finding other means to get around.
As I stood filling my gas tank yesterday at the local ARCO, I was awed at how fast the price digits were increasing compared to the digits for the number of gallons I was filling. It was like watching the turtle and the hare. Except in this game, it looks like the hare is going to win.
