i can drive to work and its cheaper and faster than transit (i also get a seat the whole way)

i live arcoss the street from a skytrain and less than two blocks from the closest bus stop @ work (a B-line to boot) and you still couldn't get me in transit - it a second class transport system
Rush hour: cram it to full capacity & you have wait 3 trains or buses to get on
Reg service: bus every hour

what a joke

People drive around just to window shop or go somewhere to get out of the house for a while. Also a lot of people run to the store for little things which could easily be combined with other things.
In cities, where the largest number of people live, people can walk in stead of taking the car for certain things.
If everybody would park their car for a day, there would definitely be a decrease of gasoline usage.

1 day wont do sweet fa! no way they even care cause all your gona do is fill up the day before or eake it till the next. if you want to make a difference find alternative ways to work for a day hell even a week !!!!. yayaya i know not everyone has a means or thier schedule is wacky, but its the only way youll make a difference. think bout it they know we need fuel, with 800 billion made a year by gas and oil companies 2 billion wont even make them sweat. im gona fill up my truck and all my jerry cans that day .......HA!! i dont think ive ever complained bout fuel but do get surprised when it jump so quick. good luck if it works cool, if not ,stop bitchen and commute.

How about carpooling? Thats a fairly simple reality. Especially with co workers. In the big picture it would probably make quite a difference.

Say if everyone in one town drove their own car to work, it would require X amount of dollars. Now what if half of the towns population rode with 1 co worker that lived close by?, it would cost approx half the amount, more or less depending on the effiency of the car driven compared to the one left at home, and the extra distance to get to the other persons house. And maybe people could even get organized enough to carpool 3 or 4 people, cutting costs down by up to 75%.

We should go about this 1 step at a time, instead of trying to make the whole industry come crashing down at once. Are we really just puppets? This many millions of people can't free themselves from a greedy minority? I'm sure with enough enthuiasm and willpower people could make something work.

I am still not going to buy gas on the 15th, just out of curiosity's sake.

I am in, never know if something may work.


Gas will never be cheap as long as people buy things with a v8. Every other continent on earth has proven that anyone can get by on smaller engine / deisel.

Then again, if everyones vehicle got 60 mpg, their profits would drop and theyed probably raise the price anyways.

At work lately i was doing some deliveries in a huge chevy fullsize. There is nothing i couldnt have hauled in my datsun.

What we need is a gun toting lowlife. a few gruesome murders of a few gas execs. with notes stapled to their forehead of why, and gas would come down. worked in the middle ages .

We are in!! What sucks is paying for it and having no other option; some of us need to carry tools(not the light ones!!) and have to drive. Anyone want to build a super heavy duty bicycle trailer to carry tiles, tile saw, mortar......

it wont work!! i hate to be negative but its the truth. there are no findings from 96 that it ever worked. think about it the oil/gas companies dont care if you fuel up the day before the day of or the day after your still burnin the same fuel and they know it.the only people that know how much fuel is being burned daily are the gas stations.
the only way is just to plain not drive, ya some have to drive for work its their job i know personally but if there was ever a reason to part of somthing not driving would be IT.

dont pump gas on the 15th? ha is what the oil/gas companies say to that , finr dont pump that day your gonna pump the next= its all supply and demand its that simple. no matter what they get your cash and thats all that matters is you keep drivin to them.
ill never complain bout fuel i know that 30 or so years there wont be any so ill save my bitchen for then.
