Nicholas: The price of gasoline is soaring! Filling up my car's tank is eating into my money.
Anna: Yeah. I saw a news report in The China Post that said gasoline prices hit a record hight for the second week in a row. In my opinion, it's not completely a bad thing though.
Nicholas: How come?
Anna: Higher gasoline prices will draw people's attention to conservation. People won't be able to just close their eyes to the energy issue.
Nicholas: That's true. It's about time we thought about how to use gasoline efficiently instead of just complaining. I think I'll start turning off my engine when wait for friends!

解析: close one's eyes to (something)==視而不見
