A Rant About Gas

It's not about where you buy gas or which day of the week you do or don't buy gas, folks. It's about using less gas. Yes, consume less. If all of us consumed less gas, perhaps we could begin to make a difference in more ways than one. Here is how I have begun to change my gas-guzzling habits:
  1. I have cut back on how often I drive. Do I really need to go wherever whenever?
  2. I walk when I can. For instance, I walk the .75 of a mile to the health club rather than drive.
  3. I ride my bike when I can. For instance, today my sons and I rode our bikes to the video store and to Dairy Queen instead of driving there.

So, complain all you want about the price of gas. Doing so truly makes no difference. You do, however, have the power to act, and, no, you don't have to pay $3.50 a gallon for gas--and our environment, along with your wallet, will be better off for it. This is behavior that truly makes a positive difference, not whether you buy your gas on Monday instead of Tuesday.

Be sure to post if there are things you are doing to consume less gas. I'd love to hear about it!
