How walkable is your neighborhood?

We came across a fun and eye-opening tool today that measures the walkability of a location. Check out Walk Score: enter an address and see how it scores. Our new apartment scores an 80 out of 100. Not bad!

Especially in light of the high gas prices, it might be helpful to re-think where we choose to live and why. What is the most important factor in making that decision? Amount of green space? School system quality? Distance from work? How will this change or stay the same in the coming decades? At what level in gas price will walkability become a factor once again?
