“Congressional Republicans have come up with a more brazen solution: handing Americans $100 rebates in the hopes that they’ll chill out for the fall elections. Speaking of those elections, congressional Democrats are proposing a temporary suspension of the federal gasoline tax. That wouldn’t even get motorists back to last year’s gripe price, but it would mean a large drain on the federal treasury. All of these “fixes” have two things in common: they are short-term and they completely ignore why we’re in this mess in the first place: We use too much gasoline.”

Question: Do you think the feds are going to come up with a fix? Or is Gary right? We use too much gasoline, and it’s time to cut back?
