2. The Future
An unsustainable fuel economy will make the future uncertain, too — unless we change it.
3. Small Business
Even entrepreneurs who are used to solving problems on their own have to face the fact that there’s only one fuel they can put in their tanks. When that fuel costs more, their profit margin takes a hit.
4. Everything is Connected
When it costs more to ship broccoli, the cost of broccoli goes up. The same goes for literally everything in the economy. Permanently lower fuel prices would save everyone money.
5. Making it Work
There are ways around the frustration of volatile fuel prices, like taking public transit (if it’s available where you live and work).
6. Taking Matters into your own Hands
