Now that gasoline is officially over the $4/gallon mark and headed to $5/gallon in parts of the country, THE GUARDIAN is wondering if the mindset of those spending our tax dollars have given any real thought to shedding all the behemoth vehicles used to keep government humming along as they come up for replacement.
The police car above is a mere suggestion to those budgeting our tax dollars. Other countries have had to adjust to gasoline prices far more than they are in this country years and years ago. We have to ask ourselves what the elected, appointed and other government agencies are doing to lessen the impact of energy costs on their transportation needs. We are in the budget season for most government agencies. Let's all hope some thought is given to vehicle maintenance and operating costs as fleets are replaced.
