Lawyer, 49, Philadelphia, Pa.
Quite honestly, the gas crunch has not affected me really at all. I've chosen to live near the Philadelphia Museum of Art and walk to work on a path lined with beautiful historic buildings and fountains.
People who used to live in the suburbs are flocking to live in Center City. I have all the green space I need within blocks -- Fairmount Park is the largest public park in the country and Kelly Drive is lined with joggers, bladers and bikers.
If more people chose to live in the cities, and more cities had extensive public transportation like Philadelphia, people wouldn't feel the pinch near as much. NEXT: Brittany Shepherd: New grad struggles
