they should increase the gas tax. this would further reduce the consumption of gas/oil. however, the government, in return should improve and make mass transportaion more convenient. in the past, we have seen hikes in the cost of mass trans without any corresponding capital improvements. yes, some will say this hurts people that have to travel for business, but pass those costs on to the end consumer. the capital markets will work it out.

I am going to go out on a limb and state that those of us who want the gas TAX increased, happen to be able to afford it and will enjoy empty roads more then the incremental increase in energy costs. I seriously doubt that your average Joe and Jane Six Pack want their fuel costs to be doubled so that the government can gain control of even more of their discretionary cash flow.

I was out and about lately on the wrong coast main freeway system. The flow of trucks has dropped off, motorcycles are in use everywhere, and I could run in the fast lane with almost zero need to slow down or brake... 350 mile runs in 4.5 hours for context of average speed.

Change is happening... in fact, it appears to be happening quicker then expected...

Best,
