I have a confession to make: In a recent story about perpetually increasing gas prices, The Sun quoted Susan Sutter as saying "someone is lining their pockets, and it sure isn't me" ("Gas-pocalypse?" Jan. 7). I must admit — it's me.
Am I among the 1 percent? An oil company executive? A Saudi prince?
Nope. I'm just a normal Baltimore resident. Well, mostly normal. I am a little unusual in that I don't have a car (in fact, a third of Baltimore households don't). Instead, I go everywhere by bicycle and transit. I've been car-free for three years now, and in that time, I have saved more than $15,000.
