Ahhh, I miss the good old days (of 5 years ago) when gas prices were a reasonable $2.00 per gallon.
I may need to revisit my idea of getting to the office via canoe, I’m pretty sure I could get there on the Bark River, though my commute time would increase quite a bit…

Take a look at the prices in the UK. It’s getting close to Â£1 per litre, which is around US $6.96 per gallon.
So far, it looks like I’ve been doing enough bicycling and little enough driving post-Katrina that I’m spending less on fuel than before. Plus I’m noticing that upping the cycling from around 100km/week to over 200 km/week is really making a noticable difference in fitness, not to mention the joy of eating lots while losing weight.
I don’t think I, or my dumpster-bike would make it 60 miles per day round trip… I’ll keep saving up for a hybrid vehicle.
