Low gas prices. A relief?




I never thought I would see the day again where gas prices dropped below $1.50 a gallon, especially after this past summer. And what a relief it is for the old wallet!

These notions set in motion the illusion that we can once again rest on our laurels and put a push for renewable energy, and the monetary support that goes along with it, on the back burner.
As a collective society, if we continue to allow this to happen, then the money we save now by not doing anything will pave the way for us to spend an exponential amount later.

We are a society which is overwhelmingly reliant on oil-based resources, so as a result, it is easy to pull the wool over our eyes and not push down on the accelerator pedal toward a transition to alternative energies. Maybe it is because it all seems too hard?
