<<Good for you, intercst! You are helping our economy. And before some yahoo talks about his travels, I am fairly confident that all that travel is good for the economy, too.>>



You are being a fake pocketbook patriot if, like intercst, you target fuel consumption for the working class and excuse the fuel consumption for jet airplanes and cruise ships disproportionately used by those with high incomes and elite orientations that excuse "travel" for essentially frivolous purposes.

Frankly, everyone should be free to choose what they spend their income on. That goes for blue collars taking a family trip to the seashore in the family car and intercst traveling around the world on cruise ships and jet airplanes.

But oil is oil. targeting fuel used by the working class and excusing oil use for frivolous travel by highly educated elites is just plain class hypocrisy.
