Drive to work ------ with somebody else.

Drive to the store ----- with your neighbors.

You won't save much money. But if more us use public transportation (sharing our ride) and rideshare with friends and neighbors, we can cut back on our oil consumption.

Turn down the heat a couple of notches in the winter.

Don't use the air conditioning in the summer. Even in the South, people survived sweltering heat without air conditioning. I know. I lived there for some years without air conditioning.

We have to learn to live with less oil. Will it make us less independent, more interdependent. You bet. But it is what we have to do.
