With the price of gas today its no wonder people are looking for ways out of the commute. If you cannot telecommute, a great way to get out struggling through the commute is to Ride Share. Besides the obvious advantages of saving you money at the gas pump, think about the good you’ll be doing the environment and the friends you’ll be making along the way.
Everyone talks about how it’s time we do something to clean up the environment, how we have to come up with alternative fuels and our Carbon Footprint and Greenhouse Emissions and Carbon Credits and how our Governments are not doing enough to secure our time here on earth. Well it’s time that we really take on some of that responsibility, yes, us, the individuals. We’ve gotten so used to riding around in our gas-guzzling behemoths that we only think about what they are doing to the environment, when it starts squeezing our pockets.
Just think, let’s say you have a car for 5 people and you agreed to carpool with another 4 people at or around your work. That would mean that it would take 4 other cars off the road, that savings in greenhouse emissions is immeasurable. It would cut your gas expenses by 80%, that means if you spend $60 dollars a week on gas commuting, you could cut your costs down to $12, that’s a saving of $48 a week/ $192 a month/ $2304 a year. Now that’s a chunk of change, and you’ll be doing Mother Nature a favor.
Think about it, you’ll be helping yourself and our earth.
Well, maybe you don’t have to go this far…carpooling rideshare.com
