07/09/2007: "Don't Get Gas"
To the editor
Here's a letter to the editor (or a news item, if you prefer). It's my
answer to high gas prices and global climate change:
Have you noticed what's happening to gas prices? Can't you just see
those dollars flying away at the gas pump? Since last summer when I
decided to do something about it, I've found a solution. Don't buy gas-
find alternatives to travel by car instead.
For off island travel, the Summer '07 edition of Ali's Gas-Saver's
Guide is now off the press! It covers north Puget Sound from San Juans
and Bellingham to Victoria and Vancouver BC and south to Seattle and
SeaTac. It includes suggested routes (thriftiest Seattle-San Juans is
just $3.75 plus ferry fare), schedules, contact information and travel
tips. It's available at Griffin Bay Books in Friday Harbor ($3 cheap!)
or from me (address below, $5).
Help your pocketbook and the environment, and I'll see you on the
bus... or the cruise boat, or the shuttle, or the train, or...
Enjoy the ride,
