Most of Hamilton's population growth is ocurring in the suburbs not the lower city or dt. People who live in those areas own cars (you don't move to Ancaster to ride the bus).

As for high gas prices. The price of gasoline has fluctuated since we started using it to fill our cars. Over time the share of a household budget devoted to automobile fuel has declined, cars have become more fuel efficient and we are starting to look at other power sources, additionally we have made huge oil and gas discoveries lately (especially natual gas). Even if gas prices double people would make adjustments (move to smaller cars, invest in fuel efficiency, stop buying $3 lattes every day etc.) and continue to drive cars because too much time is wasted using public transit (especially in places like dt Toronto, Hong kong).

I love Hamilton as much as you guys but LRT will not help this city.
