The threat of a $4 per gallon gas monster galloping in during the coming year has been on the news of late. The early warning seems to me to be the license to make sure it happens. The good news for many of us is the help the college offers as a way to deal with the gas price increase. For starters, Centralia College offers bus passes free to enrolled students. This pass can get you on a bus going anywhere the busses run and that takes in a lot of territory. Check with the help desk in the Student Center Bldg. for details and bus maps. It will increasingly become the sign of brilliance or perhaps desperation when you take the bus. It will certainly provide some small measure of assistance to the environment.
