I was considering getting a moped for this very reason.

unfortunately we bike in the spring/summer/fall. In the winter I'll drive my civic. Now i just need to find time to drive the n600.

Um... blink. blink. :? I don't think I understand the question.

BTW, I heard an interesting quip in a long but very good <a href="http://www.energybulletin.net/15440.html">presentation</a> by Rep Roscoe Bartlett: "Iím a conservative but I try not to be an idiot."

He also said (and I'm not on a political soapbox here) regarding the prospect of peak oil: "In an aggressive program, first is conservation." [The overall approach must be likened to] "World War IIís effort (victory gardens), along with the effort to put a man on the moon, and the Manhattan ProjectÖ the worst case is World War III. We face a hard landing, the 1930s will look good. Or it could be The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."

Where do you live again? That's horrible! Today congress is debating true federal anti-price-gouging legislation. There is a station in Macon, GA that is selling it for about $2.599 / gallon

I live in Southern Cali. They are promising $4 a gallon and it looks like it will happen. I'm sure as hell not going to pay $50 to fill up my tank.

It's really bizarre that

It's really bizarre that your prices are still going up like that! The national average has been about flat since 4/22. Oil prices have gone back above $74/barrel as of yesterday but still. What is driving prices in California that isn't impacting the rest of the nation?
