Cars are NEEDED by us! My boyfriend simply cannot get back home during the afternoon shift from Toronto. The bus doesn't run to our hick farm town after 10 sometimes. Maybe its midnight now though...but definitly not at 3 am.
The other thing that upsets me is not the current up in prices but the raise in prices you see on Fridays because of the weekend coming and on long weekends. It's B and S IMHO. Happens every single time around here. Like clockwork.
