As mentioned previously, April 18 is “Dump the Pump: Leave Your Car at Home Day.” And the timing is nearly perfect. The weather will be nice and today a barrel of oil became more expensive than it has ever been before. It’s not too late to pledge not to drive. Carpooling qualifies, too. If you ride with someone else or give a friend a ride so they are able to leave the car at home, you’re doing your part.
