Think about this ...

I have a 30 mile commute each way to work. Mass transit isn't an option; I have to drive. The price of gas has doubled in the past year but my pay hasn't gone up to cover it. At what point does it become counterproductive to work where I do? How many other commuters are in the same boat, where the price of gas, the price of insurance, the price of maintenance for the car (let alone the price of food and everything else going up) gets to the point where they'll have to start looking for work closer to home because they can't afford to work where they do now?

If you're not worried about what the Republicans have done to the economy, or what McCain will do to what's left of it, you sure as hell ain't paying attention.
