I enjoyed this short video that compares Chicago’s Lincoln Square, where I have lived and Buffalo Grove, which is a suburb similar to where I grew up.
The video was produced by CEOs for Cities, a Chicago based organization that advocates for cities. Their website gives this description:

Housing values are falling fastest in distant suburban and exurban neighborhoods where affordability depended directly on cheap gas.
