Blog tonight called on account of tired

I want to talk about comics though. They were great. More on Saturday.

In my absence I encourage talk on Libya, gas prices and the provincial budget below.

Normal barely adequate service to resume on Saturday.

    Need to read up on Libya and the budget to comment…

    Gas prices suck.

    Comics were good. You’re getting more comics on Saturday?

    It’s comic that you want to read about Lybia – what do you want to know? mostly desert with some cities on the North, some decents oil reserves, being “managed” by a maniac under the tent for the last 40 years. That is all about Lybia! … gas prices?! They go up even when the markets are down… you should be talking about consumer protection in this country! That would be a great topic!

    Have you seen ETS fees lately? Can’t aford them! Besides not everyone is allowed to take their own scotter inside the bus…. 🙂

    • OK say – $30 dollars parking, $20 a week for gas, that is $110 without figuring in insurance and maintenance. $87 for a bus pass is pretty cheap.

      Doing a car pool is cheaper. Even two people in the car.

      And if you put a price tag on the convenience of the car and the shorter commute, it probably comes out ahead too.

        Plus you’re assuming you only take the bus and don’t own a car. While there are a large number of commuters for which this would be correct, many still own a vehicle.

        Probably offset by those that have 2 vehicles though.

        And your parking and gas are probably too low. Parking would only be good for NCC, while it’s slightly higher downtown 🙂

        • I kept the gas and parking low to make the point.

          To do a proper analysis you’d need to include all the factors: car use other than commute, or even just a car sitting registered and insured, multiple cars in family.
