There’s a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth about gas prices here in the U.S., but it’s not coming from me, because:

  1. Gas prices are a bargain here compared just about every other place on the planet, and
  2. My car use is so low that I go to the gas station only once every 4 – 5 weeks, and I regard my gas tank the same way cats regard their food bowls: half-full means empty.

In case you’re wondering how I get my errands and shopping done, I do most of them by doing about 10 kilometres each day on the conveyance pictured below:
