Hey LA invest in some public transportation. Add 5k more buses and additional routes you won’t be that concerned with Oil/Gas prices
If you are thinking about ditching your car and going with a bike or ebike, I did that this year and can highly recommend it. Depending on where you live and what your commute is like, it may be way more achievable than you think.
I currently have an ebike I use for commuting and grocery pickup, and a regular bike I use for shorter trips or for fun. The ebike helps me hit 20 MPH while pedaling and completes my commute in the same amount of time as my car did—partially because I no longer have to park. I live in an area with useful bike paths and wider, low-speed roads so it hasn’t been particularly dangerous for me either. And new bike lanes are going up all the time in LA!
If you are looking for tips about how to change things so you can live without a car, I recommend r/bikela r/bikecommuting and if you’re looking at ebikes r/ebikes — r/carindependentla is also a good one for info about non-car infrastructure in the city
Gas will never be cheap again. We've been ringing this alarm for 20 years, please figure out what you need to do and start doing it.
The political challenges, the smog, the increasing existential threat from global warming, the largely ignored but severe health and developmental effects of air pollution - those hidden costs are going to surface. You've had so much lead time.
