The big wigs are always talking about taking buses/commuter trains, but there ain't no such animal here in central Neb. It's drive or nothing. 3 hours to an airport, can catch Amtrak at 3am about 40 miles from here, otherwise that's it, and every administration tries to get rid of Amtrak, our only alternative to flying.

The problem is here to stay. The government needs to be cutting some tax deals for alternative energy companies so they can get them out to the public. The current solar tax break expires this year. Lots of people used to use natural gas in their cars to get around locally, that could be a good option. For most of our driving an electric car with 80-100 mile range would be fine for 80% of our driving. Plus, the government could let them drill off the east coast and closed areas of the Carribean. Oil rigs seldom leak anymore, so no reason not to drill more. Jerry
