Fuel cost hurting?

Amid all the rabid screaming about petrol prices, here’s a modicum of common sense from the letters page in today’s The Age (Melbourne):

If we don’t like paying higher prices for petrol or the rapidly increasing congestion on the roads, we have some personal choices that will reduce their impact. These include: use public transport; form a car pool; ride a bike; shop locally and less frequently; buy more fuel-efficient cars; send the kids to school on bikes or public transport; set yourself decreasing monthly targets for distance travelled and reward yourself when you achieve those targets; and finally, keep nagging your local councillors and politicians with demands for better and safer public transport services to support your changed transport usage.
