    Good question, but I am not sure.  It is essential to get from one place to another. We have a disabled daughter. We must have transportation for medical circumstances as well. I suppose if there would be, and electric car, or even a good adaptable electric golf cart, at least that would be of some use because our hospital is near by, and grocery stores, and post office is close by.  Bicycles would be out for us because we are too old to use them.  We would have to walk, use and electric alternative, or depend on some public transportation somehow. It would not be easy for us, or for a lot of people I imagine. GBY.

    Its not a question of how much more, are you willing, to pay for gas ... thus, motoring.
    The question, is ...
    How "long" can you "afford" to "have" these Monopolies and Multinational "Corporations" ... and How far should these greedy opportunists, be allowed to rob you ... of everything.
    Should you allow them to a point ... where they can "rob" you of your hard earned Money, or to the point, where they can rob you ... of the Right, of Living  ?
    Because, if you do not stop them now ... "the day is not
    far" ... when they, for "profits" ... will decide ... who is fit ... and who is unfit, for Living ... and Snatch away your Right of Life.

    I think we create this problem over and over.  When the prices go up, then everyone changes/reduces their driving, but instead of making this a new habit, as soon as the price comes down, they go crazy driving again.  Its just a vicious circle.  Until people are consistent with how much gas they use, the gas companies will keep winning.  The general public likes to whine and complain as they spend 60.00 to fill up their low mpg SUV they don't even need.  Kids fit just as well into a Honda or Toyota 4 door, but its a "status" thing.
    I drive a Honda Fit and a 250cc Honda scooter, so "they" don't get much out of me.  Just imagine if everyone got a car that averaged 30-35mpg and drove less, the gas companies would crumble.  It will never happen.  The same will happen if electric cars ever go mainstream.  Electric companies will raise their rates through the ceiling because they know they can.  We have the control, we just choose not to use it.  "They" need us more than we need them.
