what? How is a gas-tax holiday equated to regulation or de-regulation? How is putting more federal taxes on gas also?
My comment has to do with a far more over-reaching issue with our energy policy. We need to encourage development of alternative energy and we need to discourage driving large low mpg SUVs asap. Otherwise, we'll forever have a screwed up mideast policy based on the availability of cheap gas and oil.
Unfortunately, this is more important than keeping gas prices low for struggling families. Instead, offer tax rebates so money gets back to them, but not in a way that encourages driving.
