Well for what it's worth I recently sold a 1991 CRX HF with 156K on the odometer, very clean, bone stock (only CD player was non OEM), with every single receipt for maintnance since day one...sold it for $3900.
New buyer didn't even haggle with my price since he had been searching for CRX's for a while and saw lots of junk ones out there that were modded by teens. So if you find a clean car, it will be more likely be pricey unless they're hurting for cash, they should hold value. This was about 3 months ago when gas prices were even lower than they are now. If(when) gas prices go up, commuter car prices should go up a little but because the economy is affecting people's bottom line don't expect them to go up much.

yup, said it before, high gas prices have a limit in respect to how they dictate conservation, be it driving less or purchasing an efficient car.

BUT, loss of income(or its pontential) and business, THAT is something else entirely. it has and does now have a larger affect on conservation of fuel.

if i decide to sell my prizm, i won't let it go for less than a premium!

It isn't a totally negative thing tho! I practically stole the Durango it was so cheap. It used to be really hard to find a good SUV for a reasonable price. Not anymore!
