I just watched a video on CNN talking about the spending habits of drivers. They took a survey asking drivers how much would gas prices have to be before they start changing thier driving habits.
I just about lost it when I heard the responses, “$3.00 a gallon, and $4.00 a gallon.” Then another chump wearing a nice shirt and tie, driving a BMW 740 IL says, “$5.00 a gallon! Then I’m out (referring to driving his more fuel efficient car).”
I guess what gets me is, we can save a bit of money in the long run just by using our bicycles to run little errands here and there. If you need some toilet paper or if your wife needs some pads, take the bike! If you need to make a beer run, take the bike! Need to rent a video, take the bike!
Don’t get me wrong, I love driving as much as the guy next to me stuck in traffic, but taking the bike can seriously save you tons of money in the long run….I’m just saying!
