Autosprawl is melting down

For a few decades the US took advantage of cheap oil and built massive suburbs. A lot of developers got rich.

Now the system needs repair. Roads, bridges, water lines, sewers, electric grid, schools, drainage, and such need maintenance or rebuilding. The profiteers are gone, there is no money to be made now. The urban tax base is no longer enough to support the suburbs.
