Gas Prices Got You Down?

Posted on Posted in Environmental, general, Human Geography

If you drove anywhere of note in the US this weekend, you couldn’t help but note the uptick in gas prices yet again. If you were wondering where might be the best place to travel in the future, gasbuddy.com has a nice heat map of gas prices in the US broken down by county (there’s also a link for a Canadian version as well).

Of course if you’re just plain fed up with the whole gas price issue, you could look into immigrating to this Danish island. The island has converted itself to 100% renewable energy sources through a combination of on and off shore wind (my personal favorites!), solar, and biofuels. I’m sure you could get an electric car over there if you wanted to chuck fossil fuels completely!

  1. Its not the only Danish Island trying to do this:

    Considering it has a larger population/area, it makes their feat just as impressive.

    Personally I’d like to see the prices here in the US go up a lot more. People need to learn the hard that it’s not necessary to live a gazillion miles away from work and bikes and legs actually do come in handy once in a while. Yeah its gonna be a rough transition but I think we are better off in the long run.
