Got back home to Norman Sunday morning. The wife and I have now done a switcheroo. She's in India with the kids, and I'm here.
I drove to Norman from Dallas and could not help notice that:
1. The $4/gallon gas is not metaphorical. It really is $4 a gallon.
2. The typical speed on I-35 from Dallas to Norman used to be around 75 mph. Now, there's a steady stream of cars traveling 65 mph (5 below the speed limit!)
3. There were more buses than I recall seeing.
The price of gas seems to be doing what speed limits, environmental talk and state troopers couldn't. Bringing energy conservation to the American heartland. Cardigans this winter any one?
