Wanted: Real, CREATIVE ways to cut commute costs. NOW.



I saw an email from Yahoo’s Hot Jobs career center just now and clicked hoping for some great advice on cutting my commute costs.

Well, lets just say what I read was, um, more of the same:

  • Take the bus
  • Carpool
  • Ride your bike
  • Telecommute

With oil predicted to hit $150/barrell in a month, and prices at the pump currently over $4/gal in most parts of the US, what real, significant improvements can be made to these ideas?

At the pump, the national average price of a gallon of regular gas rose 1.8 cents overnight to a record $4.023, according to AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. Prices first moved above $4 nationally on Sunday, though they’ve been higher than that in many parts of the country for weeks.

At $150 a barrel _ the Morgan Stanley price prediction that helped ignite Friday’s oil rally _ gas would cost about $4.40 a gallon, [Tom Kloza, publisher and chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service in Wall, N.J.] said. [Source: marketplace.org]
