that's something like $9.30 per gallon... and to think that we're all complaining about $4.50
You all have a decent public transportation system, Draconis Rex?
Public transport does leave a lot to be desired believe me..... The ventilation systems only work on an ad-hoc basis, usually blow cold in the winter. Schedules are irregular more than on time, on occasion they don't turn up. The drivers can be a bit snarky (theres that word again
) even with the old and infirm. Quite often overcrowding occurs. and the condition of our roads don't exactly make for a comfortable journey.
Rail transport is expensive and due to rise yet again, in a lot of cases its cheaper to drive, and timings again can fall short.
There are many areas that are not adequately covered by public transport so, you see we're not like we once were. Better than some places in the world but not that many.
Oh and BTW, They are a melting pot of disease and infection. I guarantee, wherever you sit on a bus, inevetibly the person sitting behind you is probably hacking or coughing or sneezing right by your ear. YEUCH!
