Gas and the Utah Driver

By Christopher Wilde

As you might have guessed I'm working more this summer and writing less.  Anecdotally I can tell you that despite four dollar a gallon gas prices, throughout the day, drivers on Utah roads still travel well in excess of the speed limit, singularly occupy and barrel down the road in pristine SUV's, and generally do not seem inclined to change their ways.

The one exception to this is the tremendous amount of motorcycles I see on the road distinct from the usual summer riders by their grotesquely corpulent body's plopped onto the seats and dripping to the road.
