To prevent excessive boredom on my shift last night, I was listening to a radio show discussing energy independence. Someone suggested that everyone should make a habit of rationing their gasoline/diesel usage... say.... use only 5 gallons a week. LMAO!!!! No way. Got me to thinking if I could make it on 10 gallons a week. If you don't count what you do for a living (I used about 200 gallons of diesel last night), could YOU make it on 10 gallons a week?

I could and do, I'm not doing it on purpose. I live in town and work at home though. I can actually get to the store quicker on a bike than I can in my car. Now when I was delivering coal even driving to work was a 30 minute commute each way every day so there goes the 10 gallons even for driving to work.
