Kent Morlan, 5/12/2011 - 9:39am "As a result of 1950s and 1960s city planning, most American city sprawl all over the place. The population density of Tulsa is about 2,200 per square mile. It is not possible to cost effectively provide mass transit to a population that is so spread out.
What will actually probably happen is that as energy costs go up at a rate in excess of real earnings, people will elect to relocate so that they live a lot closer to where they work. It will become too expensive to drive long distances to work.
This will take time. I will not be alive when Tulsa is once again a compact city as it was in the 1930s.
Mass transit? Dream on."
