Suburbanites Under House Arrest Without Wheels

Suburbanites can't get anywhere without a car, so higher gas prices will lead to "collapse" of the suburbs.

Mark Alan Hughes says, "The price of gas is NEVER going down in any significant and sustained way." So, "discretionary driving" is about to become the most important difference between city and suburban living. "When $5 gas makes getting to everything outside your house a calculation, then the suburbs will teeter; at $10, they'll collapse."
