Sticker shock at the pump, as I mentioned, I believe has caused a kind of temporary mass hysteria - with large corporations changing production plans, and people making rash decisions, like this one here via my hometown newspaper.
I'm confident the craziness will abate, but until then, it is kind of comical.
The mental image of using golf carts to save a few bucks on gas to drive on busy streets (in some cases) going 20 MPH and causing huge traffic jams and congestion is funny and really makes no sense to me whatsoever.
I drive a little Miata - not altogether unsafe car, but not the safest car in the world either due to its size. Imagine getting hit by a Ford F150 when you are in a golf cart.
The fact that it is even a debate is crazy.
