Proof that gasoline remains cheap 

They stopped traffic and raised the drawbridge on Route 35 this afternoon when we were trying to cross the Barnegat River on our way back from Point Pleasant. I lowered the windows and turned off the engine, figuring that it made no sense at all to idle for the seven or eight minutes that we would be sitting there. When I was a kid, many drivers turned off their engines at that drawbridge for the same reason. You knew when the bridge was going down because you would hear the sounds of starting engines all along the road. Today, though, I was the only one as far as the eye could see.

Gasoline, obviously, remains so cheap as a proportion of disposable income that people cannot be bothered to turn off their engines even when it is wasteful to run them.
