    "The sky is falling....the sky is falling"

    Best way to conserve fuel is government should
    raise taxes...make it $4.oo per gallon.

    People will then buy more fuel efficient automobiles, drive
    less. Business will buy more fuel efficient trucks, etc.
    More use of rail,blah,blah,blah.

    Solar, wind power well then become more competitive.

    .....hence, using less hydro-carbons and the earth is saved.

    • I would agree if I had any confidence that the tax collected would be used for further research on more energy efficient storage systems, power generation etc.
      All a $4 tax on fuel would do is feed the political machine at the expense of the folks least able to pay it.
      With the exception of tobbaco I can't think of any problem solved by higher taxes.
