Mounting a USB flashdrive under Gentoo.

OK as root, I did this:
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb
To mount my USB flash drive under Linux. This is all fine and dandy. But then, I am unable to access it as any user other than root! When I try to cd to /mnt/usb it won't let me. I know I could have used the -o uid=whatever while mounting to let one certain user access it, but I want to make everyone in a certain group is able to access it. How can I do this?
