Gas Crisis, Day 4 (Monday Evening)

It is starting to get a little frightening. Very few gas stations had operating pumps along West End Avenue from the Centennial Park area to Bellevue. I think I saw one with cars lined up for gas during the bus ride home. The bus was packed. It was SRO when I got on the bus.

Still, folks are driving. The roads are full of cars and those big gas-guzzling SUVs. Go figure. It’s like living in a Third World country, which I’ve never done. In fact, I’ve never even visited a Third World country unless you count Mexico.

It’s a great lesson for us. We need to conserve.

    How popular was Nashville mass transit before the shortage? Does it provide good coverage throughout the city?

    There is no such thing as Nashville mass transit. I’m on a bus line, but I drive 5-6 miles to the Park and Ride. It’s perfect for going to work, but if I want to take public transportation anywhere but the downtown area, I’m in trouble.

    Nashville is urban sprawl.
