Here in the Twin Cities we've still got under $4 options, and a handy website that helps folks find the cheapest gas near them: http://www.twincitiesgasprices.com/. I myself have been hopping on the bus more than ever lately, and I'm not alone. Across the country, more and more people are opting for the bus/train/rail and even their bikes over their gas guzzlers.
