(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Carpooling is becoming an attractive option for
Michigan residents looking to save money on fuel.
Gas prices have risen to an average of three-39 a gallon in
metro Detroit over the weekend. But in a region obsessed with cars,
it's hard for many commuters to give them up.
The 2005 American Community Survey shows an estimated
three-point-seven (m) million people statewide drive to work alone.
Carpool critics point to the loss of independence, difficulty
finding carpools for those working nontraditional hours and
trusting a stranger's driving.
