Another 3.2 miles yesterday! That means I've walked a total of 9.6 miles in the past three days!

I thought it was just me. If you're not out walking the city, biking the city, bussing or train riding the city you're missing the experience of an evolving LA right before our eyes. Yes, bike riders seem to be everywhere these days.

The kids on my block are riding fixies and customizing their bikes, make it kind of a fashion thing [which I don't really like] but hey, it beats them seeing who has the bigger rims on their supped up Nissans!

There is a "slowness" movement that is afoot where getting from one place to another as fast as one can will not be the criteria in choosing one mode of transit over another. The cost effectiveness, the impact that it has on the environment and the physical benefits that something like biking has over driving will be the coming trend. Just as 20 years ago if you went to a grocery store and you were told to bring your own bags would have been cause for a small riot so will driving, sitting in traffic, carrying the expense of the ownership of an automobile that is used daily along with its polluting effects will be seen as out of step with current trends. It's coming and it's happening already. For those of you who are still stuck in your cars on the 405 or on the 110 try and get out. Plan ahead. Give yourself some extra time. Just this week I recieved 5 invitation for studies of new rail lines and bus rapid lines that are being considered throughout the county. If you're not in on this you are quite frankly missing the evolution of a city.

So I'm guessing that the "real" (market) price of gas is about $.60 to $1 after eliminating taxes and various cartel profits. Anybody have real estimates on the free market price?
