Gas Pains

Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.

Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.

The Rise and Fall of Sprawl

Conservation, Economics, Gas Pains

I'm told that the price of gasoline might hit $4 a gallon before too long.  Maybe even $7 a gallon.

What about the possibility of $10 a gallon gasoline?

With the prospect of a bazillion people in China and India finally grabbing the middle class brass ring - and purchasing an automobile - demand for oil is going to grow.

And grow.

The law of supply and demand dictates that outrageous gasoline prices are here to stay.

My guess - they'll get worse over time.

I wonder what the future holds for those folks who pulled-out all the stops to leverage the building of those massive McMansions an hour or more from their day jobs?

I'm kinda glad I live in good old Tosa Town.

I can walk to a grocery, church, bank, restaurant or pub.

I'm a short fifteen minutes from anywhere by car.

We've got it pretty good.

We should flaunt it.

Just thought I'd shed some sunshine on your day.


BTW - We're also in the Great Lakes Basin.  We got the water too.
