First of which being what works for them doesn't work for everybody. Not everybody lives close enough to their work to walk or bike. Not everybody lives in a place where bus transit is available to and from work. Even if it is, not everybody has the time it would take to use it.
And second, high fuel prices, even if you don't own a car, are still costing you money. Because every single thing you could possibly buy is transported by something burning fuel, and when fuel prices rise the cost is passed onto you.
I would agree, the Oil market is in dire need of regulation. It's one of the few times regulation actually makes sense.
