The good news about surging gas prices is that traffic fatalities have dropped because fewer drivers are on the road. Recent research from both Harvard and the University of Alabama at Birmingham found a drop in traffic fatalities with the rise in gas prices and predicted that 1,000 lives could be saved each month if gas prices stayed at $4 or above per gallon.

Walk to at least one place you might normally drive.
