Gas down, traffic up

November 26, 2008

Re "Traffic rises as gas prices fall," Nov. 20

It is sad to see that with the decline in gas prices comes a return to commuting by car for many residents. It surprises me a little that in a city recognized for being on the vanguard of the "green" movement, a spike in fuel prices seems to be the only motivating factor for commuters to give mass transit a try. Does the thick, gray smog obscuring the mountains to the north provide no impetus?

I think we can all rest assured that oil prices will go back up and I will not complain. I will breathe easier knowing that fewer cars are on the road and, hopefully, future generations will breathe easier as well.
