A celebration...I think...

While major oil companies recorded record profits during the second two quarters of 2008, there were families who had to choose whether to buy fuel or buy groceries.



During one particularly challenging week over the summer, we ourselves poured the remainder of the gas can for our lawnmower into the tank of my car.
Interest in public transportation, ride sharing and other ways to reduce driving miles were the topics du jour at cocktail parties, the water cooler and soccer field sidelines everywhere. SUVs were being traded at a loss for vehicles with significantly better mileage ratings.
Some very good habits were being developed.
The economy has suffered. It's been good for fuel prices.



As much as I'd like to just take it at face value, this gives me pause.
But? I'll keep working on my good habits.
