Happy the price of gas is going up..S/0

So I'm just curious...

If the price of gas going up is supposed to force people to use public transportation or walk...

What about the people in rural areas who don't have access to public transportation? Who rely on their "crappy" vehicles to get them places?

People who use diesel trucks on their property to drive through fields and down dirt roads?

If you think this would only affect a few people you're wrong.

So to whoever made that other post I'd like to hear your solution for those people.

I prefer to walk, and would walk everywhere if I could. I didn't see the post you're referring to though so I can't really say anything about that.

Ugh that lady who wrote the other post is an idiot. Don't pay attention to her. Like if she knew anything, she would know that higher gas prices will hurt the economy & then when she is complaining about all the crime because of unemployment, she can think twice. Or wait, maybe since she is so rich they will tax her more to help her fund the unemployed...dumb ppl I swear.

Where I grew up it was a 20 minute drive to get to school. It was 60 miles to the nearest doctor who wasn't a quack.

Also, I grew up in texas. It's over 100 degrees from about june to september. Lol. I would prefer not to walk 25 miles in that heat.
