June 30 – With gas punching it at over $4.00 a gallon, increasing numbers of people are looking for ways to decrease their car usage. Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama has publicly recognized that innovative strategies are needed to confront this fuel crisis and stated that the US must embrace bicycling as a viable means of transportation.

Andalusia Knoll has more from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with interviews from Scott Bricker of Bike Pittsburgh and Representative Earl Blumenauer (D – OR).

“Its time for us to be serious about investing in alternative energy. Its time that the entire country learns from what’s happening here in Portland with mass transit, and bicycle lanes, and funding. Alternative means of transportation.”
