Raleigh-Durham ranked worst for gas guzzling by Forbes

The Cities That Guzzle The Least & Most Amounts Of Gas - The Consumerist

For example: Although New York City is huge and full of people, its denizens are much more likely to take the subway than say, those living in Raleigh-Durham, who think it's fine to just drive from one suburb to another whenever they need to.
Look, I took a bus from East Hartford to downtown Hartford when I worked there. I rode my bike from Madison's Capitol Square all the way out to the office park off Old Sauk past the West Beltline. I rode the train from Attleboro into Boston. But I drive from Fuquay to RTP because there is no other freaking way to get there. Public transportation here is a disgrace. I don't "think it's fine."

(Sorry, this was posted earlier, but blogger shit the bed the other day and screwed up a ton of my tags, lost posts, and has apparently been restoring them in draft status sort of randomly. So, that's why you're seeing this again.)
