Interesting observations, Marseil. I never heard anyone complain that our roads were too wide. But we do still a lot of land that is not paved over yet. And I'm sure Americans would disagree that our gas is cheap. I remember when a gallon was 40-50 cents back in the 1960s. Now it's close to four dollars a gallon. But we are moving to smaller and more fuel efficient cars now, you'll be please to hear. And I'm all for this not only to save money but reduce our dependence on foreign oil which is the root of international problems.

I'm sure I would find France interesting. I've never been anywhere outside the US. In fact, I have not seen most of what's here to see. Guess I should travel more before I'm so old all I can do is sit and rock in a chair at the rest-home.
