Six buck gasoline. It's coming and that changes everything. Not counting WWII, has America ever faced such massive changes to our culture so fast? We are on the leading edge of a new way of life. Sociologists will point to this summer of stay-at-home love as the start of the Second Baby Boom.

Six buck gasoline. Go ahead. Try to convince me the oil companies aren't making billions and billions from this mess. Just try.
Six buck gasoline. I call BS. You, too?
Congratulate yourself if you guessed there are more than four million miles of paved roads in the U.S. And 93% are covered with asphalt. According to Wired Magazine, you’re never more than 22 miles from a stretch of blacktop (Alaska and Louisiana excluded).
Get ready. There’s a car coming that will determine if you are too old to be driving by monitoring heart rate, vision, alertness and such. The “Aware Car”is being developed at MIT’s AgeLab.
