You will also find in the UK, that the mass transit is far better than most places in the USA and makes riding mass transit an easy option, alas here more often than not it is not doable.

For example, I live in Charlotte the nearest bus stop is 2 miles away and there are no sidewalks????

Oh, my - the sidewalk issue. That drives me NUTS. There should be sidewalks all over and there are none in many areas. None in my neighborhood, for ex.

Don't laugh but since I grew up here, I never thought too much about there not being gutters/curbing and sidewalks in many areas around CLT. Honestly - never consciously noticed it - til I was in college and a prof asked me why there were so many areas w/o sidewalks and many neighborhoods - without guttering/curbing.

This can make for areas that are not very pedestrian-friendly. I am so glad to see that new areas are better planned.

Funny...I have never had sidewalks/gutters/curbing and I lived in several places in CA and now here in NC!! Never had any kind of mass transit even within 10 miles either!! Ha! I have basically lived in rural areas though! I guess if you've never had it you don't miss it! I did read today that the gas prices are once again going down. Not sure how much but at least they aren't going up!

What about bycicle lanes? It takes me about 5 minutes to drive a car to work as 10-12minutes on my bycicle. I grew up in the Netherlands and am used to sidewalks and bycicle lanes, I miss this here. If you want to be somewhat safe riding a bycicle you have to drive on a sidewalk duhhhh ... Anyways hpw long B4 gas station will show more then $ 00. 9/10 I do not understand the HYPE Every year it comes back, so they should be prepared for all this..... but no.... stick ya head in the sand huh??? Goverment or ???

sidewalks, bike lanes need petroleum to be produced the cost of fuel effects the cost of asphalt and cement.
This area has plenty of sidewalks in areas that have high concentration of people.
Only new development and YES new development is putting sidewalks and bike lanes to nowhere in where there is less right of way red tape.

That link doesn't do you any good if the staions have those plastic bags over all the pumps.

The way it looks, it will be at least one more week until the wholesalers stop rationing product to the resalers in the Charlotte area.
