There is a lot of talk today in some circles of kicking the oil habit. For politicians it is largely lip service but for folks in the grassroots there is a growing activism among people who long for alternative ways to power their cars and to heat and cool their homes. The week President Bush was sworn into his first term, the average price of a gallon of regular gas was $1.47 nationwide. Now the average is nearly $3, with some parts of the country paying significantly more.
Leaving partisan politics aside there are some folks who are organizing and demanding that we move off the oil standard. One of the groups attempting to make a difference is Kick the Oil Habit. Peace.
