Quick Thoughts on Lower Gas Prices
So gas has gone back on the cheap. But will it stay that way? I doubt it. I think the best thing that came out of $4.00 (or more) for a gallon of gas is the fact that we proved to ourselves as a country we can cut back on our gas consumption. It created a higher demand for hybrid vehicles and manufacturers are responding. My hope is that since we proved that we don’t need gas that much, we will continue to reduce our consumption, no matter how low (or high) the price of gas is. Don’t be lulled into a false sense of abundance or security. It’s still bad for the environment.
