Gas Prices and Food Shopping

Kathleen asks this question ...

Is the price of gas affecting your food buying decisions?

A recent Newsweek article looks at the effect of gas prices on Americans' food shopping habits. Many of the people in the article lament that in order to save money, they have been choosing to buy produce from local farmers who farm with chemicals. There is a school of thought that "organics is the private school of the food industry", with higher prices making it hard for ordinary folks to stay true to organics. What do you think?
