Vespa FTW.


And if you're spending more than $75 a month on basic transportation fuel, wake up, smell the emissions, and rethink your life.
:cop:



The problem in the UK is that using public transport is no cheaper. For a daily commute to the nearest town, a grand round-trip total of 25 miles by train, the ticket is $11. A monthly rail ticket is over $200. I doubt many of the Americans on this board would believe how much a season (yearly) rial ticket commuting on the train into central London costs.

And now I want to buy a Vespa. Mmmmm.

And more rail price increases this week! Thanks a lot, Gordon!

 

For a government trying to reduce carbon emissions, it has a pretty disjointed transport policy.

I sold my motorcycle a few years ago right before gas prices skyrocketed. D'oh! My daily commute is around 43 miles a day. I use about 2 gallons a day and gas costs $3.19/gal right now in South Florida. My car gets me 21-22 miles per gallon which isn't too bad for a V6. Public transportation down here is useless. It's not like New York where it's practical to take the train into the city.

Yeah, the industry has us all by the balls. The era of cheap natural resources is over, and it ain't coming back unless we can find a way to profit off of poison gas and saltwater.

 

I'm trying to rethink my life right now. It's not too bad at the moment. I live about 1 mile from my job, so I'm able to walk to work on most days; but I don't own my home. If I want to buy a house, I'll have to rethink again, because I probably won't be able to afford anything within 1 mile of my work; although it is a buyer's market right now, and that ain't gonna improve anytime soon, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

 

My job is in education and information technology, so I look forward to the day when it becomes the status quo to do my job from home on a computer and a telephone. That reality isn't far off. I hope, for the sake of our planet, that anyone who can do the same... will do the same.

Maybe you need to open your eyes and realize not everyone is in your situation :poke:

The only thing even close to being within walking distance to my office is an overpriced apartment complex. I'll take my house and $400+ fuel bill each month any day. ($400between my wife and I)

Also there's no way in hell I'd buy a house near my Wife's school. Bunch of run down college style houses that would triple my commute in said truck.
