Just read about Senate Bill 1419, Renewable Fuels, Consumer Protection and Energy Efficiency Act of 2007. It is predicted that this will cause gas prices to triple by 2010.

That's $9/12 per gallon. The economy won't be able to handle that. Sounds like the oil companies trying to scare everyone AGAIN. jmo

What does the oil company have to do with that?

That is our Congress wanting to Tax big oil more so our Government can fund alternative energy.

I guess we just listen to the Main Stream Media and believe the stuff they push.

The government wants it that way. It is in the Govenments best interest that every one focuses on and investigates big oil. Much better than looking at the money the Govenment takes in on big oil. The govenment takes in way more than big oils profits.

To me, trying to reduce gas by having the feds mandate higher Gas milage on vehicles is like trying to make a sail boat faster. Lot of effort for little results.

I think the only way we will ever reduce demand for gas it to restrick drving in major cities during peak commute hours. Only allow small vehicles with gas milage over 60 mpg to travel into cities during peak hours. Only allow big vehicles to use certain roads and then only during certain times.

So everyone commuting will have to get up earlier and arrive later ( if you want to live in the outskirts of town) and/or drive public transportation or a small vehicle.

If you need to drive a big vehicle, you can only do it during certain times, i.e. 10am to 11am and 2pm to 4pm and so forth. If you want to take your RV out on the road, you can only use certain roads and during certain times.

People will then begin to start buying low gas use vehicles. You will still be able to use your big SUV and RVs and Pick-ups and cement trucks, but only during certain times. Cement trucks only during the hours of 7pm and 6am.

To me the option is if we do not do something now, then when we have a major interuption of gas, we'll all be standing in line like they do in Bagdad. 30 mpg by 2030 or something like that is totally %$^%$#@%^&^&. JMHO s/Toby

Who do you think is making those dire predictions of the price doubling or tripling? It's the big oil interests trying to counteract public opinion. jmo

This wont fly in a free country.

All of this sounds very "big brother". Maybe George Orwell was right - just had the wrong year!!!

My thoughts were using driving restrictions as an example would indicate that we must do something different than what we ( our elected reps) are doing now (drastic). Status quo with a little increase in mpg for vehicles 15 or 20 years from now, IMHO will one day will bite us. Do you remember 1974 when there were shortages in beef, then sugar, then potatoes, then toilet paper and then gas. It can happen again. "Making Detroit and Japan" only produce good gas milage cars I agree will not happen. So we have to do something else.

A lot of our "friends" around the world would just love to see USA come to its knees, and then they could be George Orwell's implementator. America as we know it today could not survive without gas. We would be in total disaray for a long time.

We could still pretend that gas will last forever and somehow things will work itself out. However, supply does not mean that we can have it. Our friends may be able to keep it away. One of the main reasons Japan went to war was to try and control the gas pipe line.

I agree something drastic will not happen by itself in Washington. To many lobbiest and money. So some other catalyst will have to make it happen i.e, no gas in the pumps. Again these are just my thoughts. And yes, I do have a little bit of Bigspeak in me. s/Toby
