Paul Krugman on transportation problems

An excellent analysis. Money quote:

"If Europe’s example is any guide, here are the two secrets of coping with expensive oil: own fuel-efficient cars, and don’t drive them too much."

Or, you can do what I do: ride a bike and hope you don't get hit.

Seriously, we've backed ourselves into a corner when it comes to living in neighborhoods so far away from our workplaces, and I'm fortunate in the respect that I can ride the mere 5 miles to work on good pathways and streets. Lots and lots of people aren't so fortunate.
