Today is "Dump the Pump Day"

Who knew that such a thing existed? From the article:

Given the average price of gasoline these days, Los Angeles transit officials might have an easier time convincing commuters to get out of their cars and board public transportation Thursday to take part in the third annual National Dump the Pump Day.

The campaign is orchestrated by the American Public Transportation Association, and Southland transit officials are on board encouraging people to take buses or trains for a day.

"Using public transportation is the quickest way to beat high gas prices," said Peggy Delach, president of Foothill Transit's executive board. "I take public transit to work in Los Angeles and I can tell you first-hand that the money saved is significant."

Sounds good to me!
