Gasoline prices are sure pushing into new territory lately. Adding pain to the situation is the rapid inflation of food cost. Ouch.
Gas is over $4.05 in Washington, DC this week.
Our family is already making some changes. Of course, I have always been a bicycle commuter, but now, I insist that my teen son bicycle to places with me rather than us taking the car. I tell him that it is HIS world we are saving. My wife absolutely refused to bicycle anywhere for any reason and that won't change. However, I did stop her from driving to the QuickieMart for a cola yesterday.
So, what impact is it having in your neighborhood? Are more people choosing bicycling as a mode of transportation?
It might be a little difficult to know if a rider is transporting or out for leisure, but I think you can tell.
