Headed to Europe? Take Your Bike

Gas prices have hit nearly $9 dollars a gallon across Europe, according to this articlein Time Magazine.I can attest. I was recently in southern France (no, don't feel bad for me!) where gas was $10 dollars a gallon. The reason?  A helpful explanation in this Washington Post article.  Europeans have always heavily taxed gas; but it's never been this bad.Still, my recollection of travels around Europe is that people use public transportation as much as possible, they bike, they walk.  They might even have it easier, in some parts, avoiding driving, than we do here in the U.S.  Are you avoiding driving?  Taking the bus, biking, walking more because of high gas prices?  Let us know!
