Speaking of driving, I'm not sure why people disagree (at least according the results of our voluntary news poll) with the increase of the tolls on the Memorial Bridge from 35 to 50 cents.
Yes, people don't like it when anything (prices, taxes, etc.) go up. But, as I reported in a story last year, the last time the toll was increased...to 35 cents...was around the time Richard Nixon resigned the presidency.
Back then, you could still buy a new, full-size car for less than $10,000.
Considering that the price of gas has more than doubled...and, at some times, tripled...in the past decade, a hike of 15 cents shouldn't be that hard on local pocketbooks.
