Despite relief at pump, Lubbock drivers still feel drained
James Jodal moved to Lubbock four months ago as gas prices were skyrocketing and his commute to work in the Metroplex wasn't getting shorter.

We created this crises for the second time in 40 years and still have not done anything to improve our lot.
As long as we want this to happen and others can buy patents and shelve them, then this will continue.
We need alternate form of fuel because we have created the distant families and so we must drive to see them or shop. The mom and pop stores are gone and you cannot walk down to the corner to get your grocries any more.

Tom, I agree and would love to see Lubbock lead in conserving the resources we have by using the public transportation available and lobbying for more. We should also have more and better defined bicycle lanes where the average citizen would feel safe riding his bike or three wheeler to the super market. Several US cities such as Jacksonville, Fl are promoting bicycle travel and although I am a little old for a bike I would certainly invest in a three wheel for local errands. Hybrid bicycles of all configurations are also becoming available --- these are bikes both two and three wheel with battery powered motors and peddals with ranges up to 75 miles.
