Kerry's gas plan, if he becomes President, would pattern the typical liberal approach. First, raise taxes by at least $2 per gallon in order to dampen demand. Second, tax credits for folks who buy high milage cars. Third, tax credits for companies that make high milage cars. The tax would certainly have an effect. The second and third items would be as useless as they've been for the past 30 years since Carter put them in place. The obvious solution, developing more domestic oil resources and refinning capability would never enter Kerry's mind, nor would the development of nuclear energy, which would free up more oil for use in transportation.
