Taking care in transportation

With oil at a record $61.62 a barrel today, perhaps it's appropriate to look at ways to make our oil go further, whether we are making personal or business decisions. With talk about human-generated climate change, perhaps it's time to think of ways to reduce our impact on the earth.

Here are some interesting links I found:

This isn't an indictment of any one mode of transportation; it is a bit of data to help us think about how we get places. I've also not vetted the numbers, so corrections and better references are welcome. It's certainly clear that a bus carrying 40 people is more efficient than the same bus with only 2 passengers, so keep all this in perspective. Incidentally, I'm rediscovering the pleasures of walking or riding the bus instead of driving and parking.
