Drivers Driving Less as Economy Slows
(RED HUBER, ORLANDO SENTINEL)
Andrew Harrell, 50, rides his bicycle at the end of his 12-mile commute to work in downtown Orlando from Winter Park on Monday, October 27. Automobile traffic in Orlando has dropped by an average of 2 percent as the slow economy and high gas prices make more people cut back on their driving. Harrell says that he figures he saves $150 a month on gas by commuting on his bicycle.
