More people are taking long commutes. Problem is affordable housing gets farther and farther away....
One point I liked - automakers will probably make better seats. I'd love a better seat traveling to www.hybridfest.com (http://www.hybridfest.com) ....

They have to make better seats as the kick in the pants from the high price of gas to fill their inefficient cars starts hurting our backside.

I recall a couple of times trollers would smuggly say driving/walking a couple of miles to work made them greener than hybrid drivers on long commutes. Yeah right - pay 3-5 times for the same home.

Hey, the air that comes out of my exhaust is coming out cleaner than when it went into the intake and in much more volume than the guy walking can filter. Plus, my filtering isn't causing damage to my lungs from breathing in that city air.

If I had the power, I'd take the keys from the trollers that say stuff like that for a couple of weeks so they could "walk their talk". :p

Well some of them are telling the truth. A friend of mine is 28 years old and has only owned a car about 2 years of her life. She lives in downtown Chicago and has had very little use for a car, so I know at least some of them are telling the truth about now driving.

i come close if you count both directions.....40 miles each way....i could probably afford housing in the city i work in, but i don't want to live that close to people. when i turn into my driveway at the farm every night, i am more than happy to be where i am.
