Drivers' anxiety rising along with gas prices - Melissen Dribben,

The price of gas, inching back up toward its painful 2008 peak of $4.16 a gallon, is making motorists in the Philadelphia area miserable and anxious and angry. The pump price pinch has some vowing, as they did three years ago, to walk more, ride bicycles, and switch to public transportation. But for many who are locked into a lifestyle dependent on cars and can't afford to trade in their gas hogs for more fuel-efficient models to commute to work and school, haul groceries, ferry children, and conduct business, there isn't much they can do except stoically suffer.
