How much is a gallon of gasoline at the Fell Street ARCO station right now? $2.99
And how about the rest of America? Well, some places are at $1.99 and there are more coming soon.
Hey, remember when the SFMTA used to talk about how people should take MUNI because a one-way fare was less than a gallon of gas? I do. Not too forward-looking, huh?
And remember this ad campaign, to teach stupid car drivers about how gasoline actually costs money?
The SFMTA has stated that increasing gasoline prices are a reason to take MUNI, so, conversely, would falling gasoline prices be a reason to NOT take MUNI?
Think on that.
IMO, the SFMTA needs to deal with its numerous problems honestly.
IMO, the SFMTA isn’t even coming close to doing this.
IMO, the SFMTA isn’t even close to offering, in its words, EXCELLENT TRANSPORTATION CHOICES.
IMO, MUNI’s service is worse than a quarter-century ago, despite the dramatic growth in its budget and its fare prices.
So, real gas prices are historically low and the SFMTA’s prices are historically high.
