Prospects for $4 Gas? Start Thinking about Fuel-Free Fridays!
Indications are strong that gas is going to hit $4 a gallon this spring and summer.
If you read here regularly, you already bike, but what about your friends and colleagues? May is National Bike Month - but start with baby steps!
Here's an easy way to whack as much as 20% of fuel costs: Make a commitment to Fuel-Free Fridays. Make the commute and errands by bike or on foot.
Or pick a different day of the week to go gas-free.
Or tape a reminder next to your car ignition, and ask yourself whether you really need the car for each trip.
Folks don't have to go whole-hog with bike transportation. But if they can make enough of the short trips by bike - well, maybe they'll think about ditching the second car. Think of the savings!
This writer certainly has.
