European tax policy on trans. fuels made sense, but the US voter just doesn't have the maturity to sacrifice now for the future.  Hence enormous deficits and off to the mall.  Friend was whining last night because gas was so high.  He's getting 12 MPG in a V-8 pickup truck that never hauls anything or goes off road road.  Why I asked.  "It's comfortable".....good solid Republican voter.
