What major metro areas seem to be oblivious to the high gas prices. Meaning they have no plans in place to offer citizens other means to get around their metro regions. No plans as to what their population will do as the gas becomes, or is so out of reach for many of the population they cannot afford it. Yet these people will have no other options besides the car because of the limited infrastructure of the place. I would think anyone relocating to a big metro area in these difficult times would have to consider more than the cost of living and weather. I would think many would also have to consider as gas becomes out of reach for many, are there other options in a large city besides the car. Is it walkable and just how much interest do the city officials and the local population show in the difficult situation we are living in now.
