I don't mind to much. If

I don't mind to much. If gas never went up to $3.19 in september I would still be driving crazy and probally getting around 20mpg.

I've been thinking a lot

I've been thinking a lot about this recently and I think it's good people are forced to change, but mehbe not, becuase motives are important, but I still dunno where I stand in the whole motives/actions debate.

To me motives are irrelevant on this issue. A widely different society will be motivated by widely different things. If it takes a price increase for people to drive more conservatively, so be it.

Personally, I think motives

Personally, I think motives are very important. And I'm also not big on the lots of different viewpoints relativism blah blah blah, so that doesn't work. And I also don't like the fact that the big determining factor is cost, but so be, I have yet to find something I like about this damn country.

It sucks. But no matter how

It sucks. But no matter how much it sucks, I will continue to buy it, so you won't hear a ton of griping out of me.

There is a park and ride

There is a park and ride (park the car and ride public transit the rest of the way into the city) lot by my house and it is almost always empty.

I was shocked to see it 95% full today. I have never seen it more than 50% full.

That's pretty cool. I think the park and ride program is a good one. Thanks to Urban Sprawl most of us live too far away from the bus terminals. Providing a place to park is a good thing.

Thank god I got some gas for

Thank god I got some gas for $2.19, but it's going to waste. My gas gauge is falling fast and I'm driving freeway. I'm so mad. Not only is gas expensive but my transmission doesn't want to go into OD now.

Why doesn't it have a manual overdrive setting?

because it's obd2, it only

because it's obd2, it only shifts into OD when the tranny is properly working and when the engine warms up fully.
