Could we lower gas prices by shutting down all these buses and commuter trains?

A lot of these city buses only get a few miles to the gallon, so if you want to know where our oil is going, the answer is pretty clear, isn't it? And they take up so much space in traffic, too! And then we have to wait for them when they stop to pick people up.
Update: Couldn't getting rid of the buses bring down gas prices a bit?"
Update 2: Mad Jack, what makes you think my car gets 35 mpg? Maybe I drive a hummer that only gets 5 mpg.
