    Peak Oil Magazine

    I heard about this site while listening to the radio.

    http://www.peakoilmagazine.com/

    What does it have to do with living car-free?

    You think about it. When gas [petrol] is ten dollars a gallon, it might not be a lifestyle choice.

    While some of the general info is good to know this site's goal is to sell you on the idea
    of oil investing by buying their "kit".

    The notion that $10 a gal fuels will devastate economies is well known but folk's don't
    wanna hear it.

    If you want even a Hollywood style glimpse of what can happen during the economic
    collapse $10 a gal fuel can cause watch the TV show "Jerico". It's fairly close to the
    truth once you get past the drama.

    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    $10 a gallon is already hear in the UK with an average of 1.06 a litre.

    I'd love to to able to cycle to work, but with a round trip of 60 miles and a 4am start it's asking a bit much.

    I do envey people who commute
