I just bought a house and my commute dropped from 4.5miles each way to about 3.5 miles, not a big drop but it's slightly flatter so the electric car should like it more when I get back to using it in the summer, I'm also in town now, 10 blocks from the food co-op (I also pass it on my way to work now) and most of my friends are now less then 6 blocks away (used to be 2.5 miles) with two of are now room mates who also now live closer to their jobs and friends, one now lives 3 blocks from work instead of 9 miles, the other lives 11 blocks from work instead of 2 miles, and with the use of cell phones we try to combine car trips when someone is driving, my house is also in a flatter area instead of at the highest point in town so I use my bike more.
