OK, here is my advice:
- Give tax credits for high gas mileage vehicles (Duh!!!)
- Show a little honesty and decency and levy short term excess profits taxes on the energy industry - just take back a little of the congress-to-corporations give-aways
- Institute a luxury tax on low gas mileage vehicles (Duh!!)
- Outlaw no-passenger use of inefficient vehicles for a few time spans per day (for example: 8am-9am and 3pm-4pm) - make it hurt to be an energy abuser
Idea for average people: stop voting for any incumbents of either political party until our "public servants" clean up their acts and start to show some integrity. There are a few dozen responsible people in Congress - go ahead and keep voting for them.
