Well, then live densely. (Hello! Didn't you know that density is the solution to, like, everything?!) In a study of 60 million homes from 52 metropolitan area, the Chicago-based Center for Neighborhood Technology found that "people who live close to transit, jobs, schools and retail – typically in cities and inner ring suburbs – spend up to $2,100 less annually on gasoline than residents of outer ring suburbs, where homes and amenities are generally more spread out and require more driving." Common sense, no? [Inhabitat]
