saying: "price in dollars is generally the best measure of resource use".

Sadly, This is really not true. Look at the difference between goods made locally vs goods made in China - clearly there is more resource use simply to transport the goods from China, but they are significantly cheaper.

Similarly, there are more resources used to grow strawberries in California and ship them here to Massachusetts, but they are generally still cheaper than those locally grown.

Price in dollars is really only the best measure of price in dollars.
