I think we take our vehicles for granted too much. In places like Europe the price for fuel is much higher, and so cars are used much less. I would be willing to bet that there are millions of litres of fuel and millions of dollars of peoples' money wasted every year because people are too lazy to walk to the store or bike to work. I think that if more money was invested into public transportation and bicycle pathways, the results would be evident in both our bills, our air quality, and our overall quality of life.
Thanks for listening,
