As my car gets sicker I look at new car prices and they're rather terrifying, the hyper-efficient cars like the honda insight or toyota prius end up being like $350/month. It's been sooo long since I've had to deal with car payments. And of course driving a car regularly is one of the worst things an american does to the enviornment.
So I live near work and shopping, I only need a car to visit friends. But that is really a nice thing to do. But I'd rather spend the cash on things like solar panels.
Why can't I live somewhere where mass transit actually works.
