These are all great solutions! As we all know gas and other petroleum product prices continue to climb, even though our President does not seem to get out enough to realize it. This is going to affect the price of everything. Being in the shipping industry, I could not know this any better than I do today. It is affecting Internet businesses and other transportation dependent retailers big time. I hear this from my customers and others daily.
We can all change this trend if we really want to. For example did you know that the
Gas prices are a wake up call and we all need to do more now. Biking and waking to work is a good start but it is only a small beginning. How we set up and use our computers and other electric devices makes a difference. How we run our businesses on a daily basis makes a difference. And how we produce products, package them and get them to market makes a huge difference in our overall oil consumption.
I hear and read about a lot of great ideas every day but we seem to be using oil more than ever. So are we just talking and not doing?

Most people do not like to change. But, change is good for an entrepreneur.
