Whatever happened to “cruising”?

On Albany's 14th Avenue S.E., a notice board reminds the observant passerby of a time long ago -- and seemingly far away -- when gas was cheap and teenagers did not care how much their vehicles guzzled as they cruised streets such as 14th, Clay, Geary and Santiam. Traffic congestion and related problems got so bad that the city enacted a limit on how often -- twice per night -- you were allowed to drive in the designated zone. Ah, the days before online diversions, when a gallon of fuel cost little more than a buck. (hh)
