Changing Lifestyle

This is a nice article concerning how high oil is changing people's lifestyle.

10 things you can like about $4 Gas:
  1. Globalized jobs return home
  2. Sprawl stalls
  3. Four-day workweeks
  4. Less pollution
  5. More frugality
  6. Fewer traffic deaths
  7. Cheaper insurance
  8. Less traffic
  9. More cops on the beat
  10. Less obesity
So, we should see the change as something good. The only thing that troubles me is the poor people are suffering more. How can we solve this?
