You do need something that looks like a windfall profit, before anyone imposes a windfall profits tax, though. You, Auntie Mel, might be here to tell us that they were wrong?
Speaking as one who used to have/ride in cars, I remember circling the parking lots of supermarkets, malls, etc, looking for space close to the door, so we wouldn't have to walk more than five or six steps.
It seems so logical when you';re in a car. It looks strange, when you walk five blocks to a supermarket (minimum) and lug four bags of groceries back-- but when you have a car, there's something about parking far out in the parking lot that seems wrong.
Isn't it funny? (not haha, but strange.)
