Higher Gas Prices

I tripped acorss the blog The New Vernacular and the entry: Maybe higher gas prices are exactly what we need. I think the guy has an interesting argument. I am not sure I totally buy it. He only writes about the consumer end of gas prices. There are many businesses around America that depend on the price of gas. The cost of gas increasing change a lot of the economic realities of the US. It could change more things then people realize.

I am not saying that increased gas prices would not be a good thing in the long run. I think that Americans should think more about how much gas they are using. I am just saying that these changes would be harder than some people would realize. The cost that would be paid would not be small.
