Yeah, I remember the days of 50 cents a gallon too… though that 50 cents a gallon translated into streams I can no longer drink from, a brown, sludgy sky instead of the brilliant blue of my childhood, and oil-slicks in every single puddle… gas prices too high? How about paying the real price, the un-subsidized price of $15.++ per gallon and a return to drinkable water, edible fish, and blue skies? Chevy had a perfectly viable electric car in 1977. Today, in urban areas, a $2000 electric golf-cart would be more than sufficient for running around town, insurance costs would drop due to lower speeds and less costly settlements. Living in Europe during the sixties and seventies, If I wanted to go to the lake, I hoped on a bus and was there just as quickly or quicker than by automobile. If I wanted to get up into the alpine for the day, I hoped on a bus, then a train, then a cable-car and within 40 minutes I was in the alpine… and that was from the center of a city the size of Prince George. I agree we’re gettin’ ripped off, but it’s not the gas prices… People go shopping in Terrace from Rupert, via rail runs a passenger service with two passenger cars being pulled by a locomotive capable of pulling a hundred cars - at what, five-grand a day? I see Qualicum Beach is doing a pilot project on having golf-carts in the community. An electric golf-cart costs almost nothing to operate… Pls, don’t give me any bull-twaddle about high gas prices. Look at your life-style choices instead - while you still can.
