It's sad to say, but I guess the sky is the limit. There is a certain amount of driving almost everyone has to do. I have already cut back on driving considerably, but the higher it goes the more I try to cut back trying to make each precious drop go as far as possible.
I would work from home. Of course it would also increase the cost of all of our goods.
Here are my predictions if gas hits $10.
People move closer to their jobs or they work from home.
Cities will boom, suburbs will die.
Electric cars start to become common.
Long distance semi truck transport transitions to trains.
Short distance transport will go hybrid.
Light rail and electric buses will take off.
Air in Los Angeles will become easier to breath.
Communities will become tighter.
Lakes and rivers will become cleaner.
Roads will be less noisy.
Air travel becomes for the wealthy.
I will be able to sell my Saturn SC1 for 10k
Why? The person who paid that much for the car felt it was worth that much money to them. (I didn't think so, but then I only paid $200 for my Geo... ) Since it was an online auction, at least two people (and probably more) must agree it was worth that much. Buying a car in a online auction is a voluntary act, so there is no reason to feel sorry for them. But you can shake your head in wonder and amazement...
