If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

More people using less gasoline in US
City of Crystal snow blower
While the population in the U.S. grew by about 10% this past decade, to nearly 309 million, our consumption of gasoline these past four years has actually fallen. The diminished gas use is attributed to vehicles with better mileage, less driving and increased use of ethanol.
BIG TIME snow mover!
I fought the urge to use a gas powered snow blower to clear the driveway from the last snowfall. Shoveling was good exercise, and thankfully my back seems no worse for the wear.
Though I'm typically not one for making New Year's resolutions, this year I plan to commit to being more contentious about saving fuel; be it by car pooling, riding my bike/walking or simply clustering travel for shopping needs and other errands when possible.
