Why do gas prices change when commodity prices change?
Turn off your lights for Earth Hour

High gas prices lead to...interesting studies.

Reporters_notebook_2 Imagine you're a reporter tasked by your editor to write what seems like your 10 thousandth story on rising gas prices.  Do you get consumer reaction? Talk to an expert or analyst?  Pick any angle.  It's all been done before.  Many times. 

So what if someone did a "spin-off" study that said something like:  "High Gas Prices Save Lives" or "High Gas Prices Help You Shed Weight"?   Well, the first appears in this month's edition of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.  And the other, is by an Economist at Washington University in St. Louis.  I'm not debating the merits of either study, just saying as a former reporter myself, I'd be all over them.  In a safe, slimming manner of course.
