against the overpriced airline industry and oil industry. If you're planning on traveling somewhere within the continental US, don't take a plane or drive. Find the nearest Amtrak station and get a ticket. It's significantly cheaper than any other form of transportation. My brother took the train from Minot ND to St Paul MN for less than 60 bucks. 13 hour train ride, and he was able to sleep the whole way. Compare that to driving, where you have to fill your car every 300-400 miles with gas prices the way they are, you wouldn't be able to go 800 miles for that price. A couple hundred dollars for an airline ticket just to get there in 3 or 4 hours? Is that really worth it? All you're paying for there is the speed.
