I know I say this a lot

...But this really pisses me off. The jerk offs in California are probably the worst perpetrators of America's overuse of petrol, and rural Montanan's are suffering the most for it. Don't get me wrong, I wish people in Montana drove less, I just don't think single mothers in rural counties should have to decide between getting to work every day and feeding their kids. Especially while exurbanite, upper-middle-class douche-bags don't really care because 250K a year is still enough to drive an Escalade 100 miles a day. I had hoped that rising gas prices would get people to make more conscientious decisions about driving, but the only reality is that poorer people suffer and wealthy people go on the same as always. Welcome to America.

Sadly, it's the same here...

whilst the london congestion charge has made people think twice about driving into the city, ultimately, those that were happy to pay a £15+ a day parking fee won't be put off by another £8

which is why only 9% of commuters drive, then you can probably guess what the 9% are driving.

I'm gonna guess jacked up Range Rovers meant to prove that the driver's d!%& is at least the size of a roll of pennies...
