The Other Energy Equation: Saving Gas & Spending Energy

May 31st, 2011 No Comments Tags: , , ,

Who haven’t you talked to lately about the price of gas? Your neighbour, your sister, your hairdresser, you name it everybody’s talking about it – yakity yak yak. If you’ve been holding out taking public transit now might just be the time to take the plunge and use it.

There are at many benefits of taking transit. The obvious one is using less dough on gas. The less obvious one is while you’re saving energy in your car, you’ll be using more by moving your own caboose, hmmmmmmmm.

Studies show that people who routinely take public transit use more calories up in the day and have a lower BMI. For those of us with a keen eye on that daily energy balancing act that’s definitely a good thing.

I don’t know about the traffic in your town, but in mine spring is a new season that blooms with construction galore. Not only is it a city that never sleeps, but it’s also a city that never moves…..on the roads cum parking lots, anyhow.

In one go you’ll be spending less on gas and using more energy on movement. That’s one energy equation that makes more than double the sense!!
