"The oil and automobile industries, the two largest industries in the world, have worked together to automobilize America. The giant pair paved the way for thousands of miles of freeways and they help plan urban and suburban areas so that people have to drive miles to work, shop, play or do anything. They have worked to derail effective mass transportation. They have made almost everybody dependent on driving their oil burning automobiles. The effect is anti-human automobile centered cities and dangerously foul air"
- The Incredible Rocky vs. the Power of the People, Joel Andreas 1975
