Quicker commute--uh-oh


Betty Beard, AZ Republic, Sept 25, 2011, says traffic has been thinning in AZ.

Isn’t that good?

No—it can be another sign the economy is softening even more—no job to go to, no money for gas, maybe no money to get a car.

Nationwide traffic is down 1%. In Arizona—more than 2%.

Diesel fuel sales are down, too—fewer trucks.

Still, they call it “slow growth” not double-dip. “Stumbling forward,waiting to get the energy to run, but not falling down.”

All righty-then.

PS About that infrastructure stuff—maybe we won’t need new roads or widened roads if this keeps up. Just a thought.
