Emergency Transportation Ideas

Human Powered

Walk or bicycle if you're not going far.

Store gasoline

Do a transportation survey to determine how far you need to travel each day, and multiply by the length of emergency you wish to plan for.  This is inherently inefficient.  Auto engines are only about 15% efficient.

Electric Vehicles

Electric bicycles or cars can help extend commuting range if you live in a small community, and they're cheap.  They will require a source of energy, however.

Here's a review on the Giant LaFree E-Bike I own.
