Better than a gas tax holiday|
It was very nice to read an article of such length and information in comparison to the soundbites that so many (too many) other senators and congressmen dole out to the public.
Something has to be done about gas prices. It stinks that my awesome student teaching position might be compromised because I cannot afford to pay $3.90/gal to drive out to Ypsi for 16 weeks. I quail to think what my actual teacher pays in gas, he and his wife have four children, and two cars. (He drives the beat-up econo model, she has the minivan for transporting their clan about.)
I think that Levin's proposals are sound and reasonable - I sincerely hope that people start listening to him.
If you need to crash here weeknights for 16 weeks to make the teaching position work, btw, that may be an option. I'm not ypsi but I'm at least 2/3 of the way. I understand that wouldn't work with your current carpooling plan, but I just thought I'd mention.
Thank you for the offer. Honestly, I'm thinking about it. If I were crashing with you I wonder if my teacher could just pick me up on the way (it's only a little out of the way, since, you're so close to 94, but I could probably pay him weekly for gas) - he's coming from Jackson.
alternatively, since you'd be within the AATA system, you could see if there's a bus route combo that would get you there.
Way ahead of you! I could get to about Carpenter Road - then I'd be stuck. The high school is way the heck out on Willis Road. (I didn't realize HOW far until I drove it myself!)
If it comes to it... you could always borrow my vehicle and I could bike/walk to work.
