With a few months of exceptions here and there, I've been working at home for about 15 years, when my employer isn't sending me around the globe.

I fill my gas tank once a month.

Love all the morons that think the entire world lives in stinking cities.

Dear city dwellers. EVERYTHING you consume originates from people outside cities. When farmers can't afford to plow fields, where do you think your food will come from? When you can't get that new IKEA bookcase because a truckdriver can't afford fuel, where are you going to get one from? When your subway car blows an axle, and the steel plant is shut down because it can't fuel it's machines, how are you going to get around?

Stop being smug idiots. You are entirely dependent on all those people that need affordable fuel. Without them, you will expire.

Your very lives depend on them. They don't need you at all. Wake up.

I've been work from home for like 20 years now. I teach classes to adults sometimes, but when I do that, the classroom is in a building that's literally across the road from my home. I haven't been to my office in 2022.

That being said, I like taking trips in to Chicago and southern Michigan during the summer a little too much to say $6 gas isn't incredibly lame.

Of course they need cities.  Who will buy the food and the axles?  Who makes the fuel?  Last I checked, the refineries are in Houston, New Orleans, New Jersey, and Los Angeles.

So, you should logically encourage the millions and millions of townies and city dwellers to preserve more of that Permian Stink Juice for future Important Rural Needs by taking transit and living efficiently, rather than driving the old Expedition to soccer practices and Walmart.    But, no, you seem to want them to run it out faster, raising the market price for it, and eventually f**king over farmers who actually need it.

I am glad to be on my third year of working from home (even changed my employer in that timespan); however, 11 gallons in my Mazda cost me $58 the other day.  I drive once per week, but that still sucks.  Would love an electric car for many reasons, but I want/need my mortgage paid off first.

That's just the tip (giggle). Cities are the centers that create technology, the centers of entertainment, publication and arts creation, (this is currently a bad example but) the centers of the rule of law and civilization, the center of the economic engines, the center of scientific and medical advancements. Etc etc.

If you think you'd be happy plowing fields 16 hours a day behind a mule just to die at 30 from disease or starvation. Then sure. F#ck cities.

The issue isn't the rural population. It's the suburban population who need a big plot of land to build a McMansion, drive 20+ minutes to anything and NIMBY anything that might take away anything from the above.
Also, the public policy in the last 70 years has been driven to cater to the suburban population at the cost of the urban population. Highways cutting through cities, higher density housing eliminated so that large parking lots can fill up valuable space and cutting funding to public transport/walkable solutions because people can just buy a car.

We did the math. If we made coffee at home, instead of picking up at starbucks, we could continue to drive both of our vehicles into our same-location office/salon space thus continuing our autonomy and not shifting our budget. I like the home-brewed better anyway.

However, the same people who are giddy about high gas prices forcing people to use mass transit or buy electric vehicles seem to forget that pretty much ALL FARM EQUIPMENT runs on diesel. Super high diesel prices are going to cause massive food price increases.

The upcoming food crisis looks biblical in proportions.

It's not so much the diesel, but the natural gas which produces fertilizer from ammonia via the Haber-Bosch process.

But I'm not worried about that causing a famine.  High prices for fuel will curtail a lot of demand long before it curtails food demand.

I'm not seeing evidence of any curtailed demand anyway.   Everyone is biatching about prices, but traffic is as bad as ever.

By farmers, you mean billion-dollar aggrocorps, right? And by "trucker," you mean multinational transportation corporation? I'm sure they'll be able to dip into petty cash and find some way to pay for gas. And if their employees can't find a way to pay to get to work, they'll either have to get raises, or (more likely) we'll see the return of company housing.

If, on the other hand, you're taking about independent farmers and truck owner/operators, I suggest that you return to your time machine and stop spending all your time shiatposting from 1960.

Everyone I know who makes this argument isn't actually a farmer, they're suburban wannabe's.  I like to remind them that their commute from their two acres with a mcmansion on it, in the middle of a million subdivisions of other mcmansions on two acres with lawn tractors and gas snow blowers to clear their 50-yard driveway, all built 40-60 miles outside of major meto areas are more responsible for the high price of fuel due to their commutes and 15 mile trips to the grocery store in 15MPG crossovers than anything "townies" are doing.  Stop sucking up all the resources, and the real farmers will have more than enough for themselves.

Transit, shall we say, is lacking in Salem, OR.  There's a bus stop on the block, but it takes three times as long to get downtown (after you get on the bus) as it does to drive, so my wife drives when she has to go in to the office.

Oh I blame drivers for several things:

Cars and our robust roadway network gives us a surprising amount of flexibility to live in relation to where we work. And then when people buy a house 60 miles away from the office/city center because they want a big home and big yard, it's suddenly everyone else's fault that they have a brutal commute and are spending a fortune on gas.

Americans could bicycle a lot more than they currently do. We drive ridiculously short distances that could be bike rides. And when cities try to add bike lanes to make cycling safer and friendlier, people biatch and moan about losing a lane of traffic, losing on-street parking, etc. And those short distant trips around town are the most fuel inefficient. (Unless I have to haul a lot, I try to always cycle trips under 6 miles roundtrip.)

Part of the problem is that cities are very timid about replacing vehicle travel lanes with pedestrian and bicycle ones.  So you end up with a patchwork of bicycle lanes, often with minimal or no protection, and a bunch of drivers who are either angry or inattentive.  Then there are often issues with parking your bicycle at your destination, especially if it is a business.  Or how police consider bicycle theft a low priority issue.

Yeah, no wonder people aren't giving up their vehicles in droves.

If you've never experienced the alternative, or lived the alternative, so you really know it exists? Do you really understand it?

That's the problem in America, with a lot of nice things that exist elsewhere. Americans at large have no experience of them, and view them with suspicion.

If I was angry about all these things I would never not be angry. As it is, I have trouble not being frustrated with the dystopian tilt of the country.

I live in the 'burbs in a midwestern city (Kansas City), so we have no real public transportation in our area.  But I work from home.  In the last 15 years, 12 of those WFH.  Wife is a teacher, but works less than 3 miles from home.  We do have to drive everywhere, the nearest shopping area/ resturants is less than 3 miles away the roads are 45-55 mph.   But I recently got an electric bicycle and have found round-a-bout ways to get there on my bike.  I tried to order a Ford Mavrick hybrid to save gas money, but the dealership stole it from under me (I put in the order, they changed teh contact info, when they got the truck they said I never got it. So they sold it for $5k over what I was going to pay).

zgrizz: Love all the morons that think the entire world lives in stinking cities.

Dear city dwellers. EVERYTHING you consume originates from people outside cities. When farmers can't afford to plow fields, where do you think your food will come from? When you can't get that new IKEA bookcase because a truckdriver can't afford fuel, where are you going to get one from? When your subway car blows an axle, and the steel plant is shut down because it can't fuel it's machines, how are you going to get around?

Stop being smug idiots. You are entirely dependent on all those people that need affordable fuel. Without them, you will expire.

Your very lives depend on them. They don't need you at all. Wake up.


Yes, because the POTUS has magical gas levers that can be adjusted at will.

STFU.

Maybe if ya boy Putin hadn't invaded Ukraine we'd have cheaper gas.

But sure, all Biden's fault.  Moron.
