Yesterday I forwarded an email I received from John G. Miller. He wrote the book QBQ!- the Question Behind the Question. It's a book that deals with personal responsibility, something people try to shirk nowadays.
The email is called QBQ! QuickNote. The topic at hand was the price of gasoline , economy and what we could to try to control it. Long and short, it dealt with supply and demand, and cycles. If we don't like the prices in a certain restaurant, we usually eat somewhere else. The same goes for other commodities. Now if we would start limiting our use of crude oil, as far as our driving habits are concerned, we might force the hand of the big bad oil companies. We have seen the price of gasoline more than double in the past three years, but we still practice the same habits. If we don't stop that, we won't have any other choice but to pay increased prices. While we wait(just don't hold your breath) for alternative fuels, we should start practicing alternative transportation. And , yes, I will ride my bike and walk more.
Cliff Note to John G. Miller: If you get a Google alert of this blog post, be aware that I have forwarded the email you sent me to many who read this blog. And you know I have put enough links in this post. Also feel free to leave a comment.
