Northwest environmental think tank Sightline has a cool little graphic up about how people in Oregon and Washington are using less gas than we have in 30 years. That's a change from recent years.


It's interesting to keep in mind amid all the reporting on gas prices climbing—we're actually doing a solid job of driving less. Of course, the downside of that is less people buying gas means our gas-tax-dependent city transportation budget will be in trouble unless we increase the gas tax in the future or find some better funding method.
