    Show us your commute

    Where is all of the traffic? Commuting in the U.S. seems to be changing. There are times when coming out of denial to finally face and come to terms with problems pays off. Gas prices heading to $5.00 per gallon this June is one of those cases. Finally, Americans are truly feeling forced to dowsize their gas-guzzling, air poluting trucks. They are beginning to turn in large numbers to public transportation and more efficent commuting alternatives like flexible work situations that save money and the earth's environment.





    Traffic jams are down 5% on average at peak times across the country already in just a few months of escalating gas prices. Imagine how quickly American's will adapt to an aternative form of energy to power our transportation of the future that does not polute and costs about half of what we are paying now at the pump. The race is on to find this solution, as with current gas prices there is a lot of incentive for others to find solutions that will make everyone better off in the long run.
