I had to drive down to Fredricksburg, Virginia yesterday. This meant leaving at 6 am to miss the traffic on the Beltway. I waited until 6 pm to return home, and got stuck in bumper to bumper traffic all the way back to Gaithersburg. By the time I dropped off the car, and took the Taxi home, it was 9 PM. The whole day shot.
My normal life involves commuting by Internet, bicycle or train. Driving completely sucks. I don’t understand what people like about it.
Future generations will need the petroleum for plastics, medicine, lubrication and many other reasons. We need to stop wasting it.
