Petrol Prices

I’m no longer an active biker, so the issue doesn’t directly affect me, but I was watching a news report on TV this morning about rising petrol prices and I had to laugh at the interviewee who complained that fuel was so expensive that it was cheaper for him to take the train to work. Correct me if I’m wrong, but surely that’s a good thing and exactly the situation we should be aiming for.

Nobody in their right mind is claiming that reducing car use is going to be painless but most of us agree that it’s necessary. It benefits all of us, including those who still drive because they have no choice.
