    I think that there is some upside to these soaring gas prices. For one, more and more people are choosing to use mass transit instead of driving. NPR just ran a story on this yesterday.

    More importantly, especially in smaller towns like the one I live in, people are choosing to walk or bike.

    It always makes me crazy to see the same neighbors driving a block and a half to the grocery store, often on a daily basis, for a couple items. Those same neighbors must have had it with gas prices, as I see them walking that block and a half these days.

    Yes, I agree there are definitely benefits of high gas prices.

    But there is also the higher food costs, foot riots and food scarcity in poorer countries, and the overall effect of an economy dependent on gasoline for daily commuting.

    While I'd love to see more people biking and taking mass transit, my pragmatic side also says gasoline is still a necessity for many people who simply can't get to work any other way.

    It is the parents already on a tight budget who are being most effected when they have to choose between gas to get to work and buying food for their kids.
