Everybody’s talking about it. The cost of fuel is rising daily. These inflated prices are effecting every area of our jeopardized economy, from our grocery bill to the cost of a single flower. Something has to be done, so go the murmurings and complainings.
The solution is quite simple. Let’s take other means of transportation. What are you talking about, you might ask. I was thinking about the two-wheeled vehicles, called bicycles. Not only would it be much cheaper than operating an automobile, but health care costs would be dramatically reduced.
Imagine America getting healthy and fit! Bicycles don’t emit toxins into our air. We would all lose our excess fat, and all of this getting healthy would reduce the need for visits to the doctor. Heart disease, diabetes, and morbid obesity might become issues of the past. Our interstate highways and roads would last longer, allowing us to stretch our tax dollars.
I was always curious about what it was like to live back in the horse and buggy days. I think this is a brilliant solution. So what if it would take longer to get where we are going. We are trying to get there too fast as it is. We are all so stressed out from the pressures of our fast paced lives, that we can’t relax and live.
And, Lord help us all that we might have to walk a mile or two! Walking. Now, that’s a thought….a fleeting one, but a thought.
There are lots of solutions to the rising fuel costs. It’s a big supply and demand thingy. Don’t demand and the supply will build up and there will be no choice but for it to become cheaper. Just don’t buy it! Take to the roads, but not in our vehicles. Alternative means of transportation could be our life saver, in more ways than one.
And the wheels keep turning.
