Thursday is apparently Dump the Pump Day in all civilized parts of America, including Long Beach. Instead of driving comfortably to work, while texting and listening to NPR, you are encouraged to cram your body between enthusiastic deodorant-optional commuters of like mind. "An average family would save about $6,000 a year by using public transportation," said [Brynn Kernaghan of Long Beach Transit]. "Especially with the 90-cent fare for a one-way rider, you can't beat that - just with gasoline alone." [Press-Telegram]
