San Francisco Bans Plastic Bags

I'm in San Francisco this week...the story has already hit national media but I think it's pretty interesting. The city has decided to ban plastic bags from its stores. Anything reducing our dependency on oil is a good thing, and this measure aims to save about 450,000 gallons of oil. How many gallons of oil in a barrel of oil? 42. Not only that, but of course plastic bags last pretty much forever and kill wildlife too. I think it's a good measure all around, hopefully other cities follow suit.
