High gas prices will mean higher grocery prices, higher pretty-much-anything. Those of us with low-middle incomes will be hit hard if prices go up very far very fast.

OTOH, we will never get serious about exploring alternates to petroleum based transportation until the prices really start to hurt. I am excited about recent research into algae based fuels. By the looks of the early results, we will need very little in the way of change to the transportation infrastructure to make use of algae derived fuel. That's something that can not be said about almost every other renewable fuel source, including ethanol. And changing infrastructure is a MAJOR block in converting away from petroleum.
