Today I rode past my local gas station and gas was a whopping $3.65/gal for regular...I just got gas yesterday at the same gas station and it was $3.55. Now, unless I missed something within the last 24hrs, gas has mysteriously increased at the pump... but, a barrell of oil is still $117.60, which was the same as it was yesterday.

Anyway, I know we are all suffering ...particularly those of us that got sucked into the whole SUV craze. So, as I started to research my transportation options...I came across some alternatives that may be very useful to us all and I figured I would share this information for those that do not want have to get a second job, or give blood every week just to afford these outrageous gas prices.
