From NPR, we learn this morning that gasoline use in the USA has gone down about 1/2 of 1% over the past couple of months according to the Dept. of Energy. We can be taught! All it takes is gasoline prices going over $3 a gallon and staying there for six months, plus a slowing economy, and we use less gas instead of more.
It's the first time in ten years that this has happened. I bet you didn't think that it ever would happen! It's good news actually. Do you want to know the bad news? The bad news is that, due to the realities of global climate change, our gasoline use needs to go down by 100%.
