In Los Angeles, the rising price of petrol is prompting people to travel to work by train rather than by car. According to figures from the city's subway system, the number of passengers increased by more than 14% in the first three months of 2008

I'm sorry, but how in the world could someone have lived in LA for 30 years and not know that there is a subway here. Remember when the red line was being built, all the NIMBY's were all over the news whining about it?
