Hunter9 saidthis is not good news. back when it was nearly $5 here in california people were actually changing their reckless, wasteful habits.
if there ever is going to be any change to actually conserve our resources and invest in alternatives, there needs to be a boot on our throats
This is very true. Even though the price of gasoline has gone down, we should still use gas wisely and rationally.
Even at $3.44/gallon, it's still about $.60/gallon more than this time, last year. Now, at $2.00/gallon, you might need to worry about a resurgence of SUV mania, but I don't think that's going to happen. The public is generally aware of the volatility in the oil markets, and I don't think that most people are going to bet on sustained decreases in gas prices.
