Here in the NetXNews office, we decided that it would be good to brainstorm ideas for saving a buck or two. The first thing that might be beneficial to your wallet would be to ride a different vehicle. I strongly suggest you use those two legs god gave you. They are highly efficient because they use most of the fuel you give them. The waste product isn't environmentally toxic either. The next best thing is riding a bike. It has the same benefits as walking docs with less than half the time involved. Just don't forget to invest in a bike lock, others may be interested in your bike. The third way to save yourself a buck is to ride the bus. Just head on down to Campus Connection and get your UTA school-year pass. It only costs you tuition. Just drag your class schedule and UVSC ID card over there and they will hand one over. From then on you'll be riding UTA free, including Trax. One of my personal favorites is mooching rides off my buddies. Don't worry, they have the money to get around, or they wouldn't be driving that BMW. Let's not forget the guy standing at the freeway exit holding a 'Will work for food' sign. Man, that guy is cool! I bet he gets all sorts of free rides. Many hobos like to travel by train, it's highly recommended. There are only a couple of drawbacks. You have to be ready to run at any time, those railroad inspectors can chase you like hell, man! And, if you ever get between boxcars you're screwed. Like S old squished Samson. What a mess! Another excellent way to save on gas is to t quit your pizza delivery job. Eventually, you will realize that when your buddy says to you, "There is real future in the pizza business," he is talking about himself, and it has nothing to do with you. So, there are many different ways you can beat the petro leum industry, some better than others. Most of us have to think about our wallets most of the time. Some of us actually think that using less fuel would be cool because it would help the environment as well as ourselves. Either way it is time for some carpooling, bus riding or just taking our time walking. Domestic gasoline prices don't drop with the oil price, like in ) 2001 when it dropped to approximately $14 per barrel. We shouldn't expect it to drop, now that the price of oil is rising. We all have to face the fact that gas prices are not coming down any time soon. We're still paying roughly the same price now as when oil was $44 per barrel. So, let's get out there and save some money! As gas prices level off for the time-being, unaware consumers like Melissa Matheney (shown above) know little or nothing about rising oil prices.
