Falling Prices, Holding Steady

Gas is now below $1.70/gallon in our part of L.A. We’re both still taking the bus, of course. Gas prices aren’t the only thing encouraging us to do so. Actually, they’re one of the few things that had nothing to do with our choice of commute.

I did drive to the bus stop this morning; it was pouring, and I’m not that confident or skilled a cyclist. Also, I like to have dry hair and clothes at the office.

Michael Kingsley has a column in this week’s Time magazine about taking advantage of low gas prices to institute a higher gas tax. Assuming that it could be dedicated to specific transit and infrastructure needs (and that’s a big assumption), I think it’s a good idea. What about you?
