    Bike sharing in NY. That’s awesome!!! Hey if it works in Europe, why not here also? Gas prices are ridiculous and will continue to be ridiculous. I drove a 2002 Ford 6-cylinder to do my errands the other day and paid for $30 gas that only filled a little bit over 1/4 of the gas tank (it probably cost damn near $100 for a full tank). Near finishing my errands with plenty of stop-and-go traffic between Frisco and South SF, the empty gas light was already lighting up.

    We should definitely have a bike sharing program here in SF also. It will motivate the city to improve its bicycle infrastructure, that’s for sure.
