Stop driving so @#$% much!

One person can make a difference. Cut down on driving! Walk, take public transportation, carpool, combine trips. Your dependence on foreign oil is nobody's fault but your own. (Obviously, the same goes for me.) And as the graph at the bottom illustrates, gas prices can still go way, way up.

We'll either have to start driving less by force or by choice. Make it the latter. Personally, I find a lot of satisfaction in taking TRAX to work, carpooling and walking when I can. Matt and Andrea ride their bikes to work. I'm certainly not perfect at this (especially this week with a sick newborn). But if you haven't tried any of those alternate methods of transportation I highly encourage you to do so.
