[Cyclelicious] New comment on Raleigh Coasting review.

Gas prices are one of the key ingredients in deciding how we live. We have embedded the cost of fuel into virtually every product. Trouble is fuel prices are still too low and now just approaching the prices paid over 30 years ago.

From an individual's perspective, when they reach a level that when filling up the SUV every month is more than the mortgage payment, much will change. Either Iraq is the 51st state or most SUVs will be sitting in back yards as a club house for the kiddies.

What's funny is how over 30 years ago, President Carter (as did his predecessors) said this over-dependence was a serious problem that needed swift and effective governmental action. This national security issue has yet to be addressed.
