Re: Four Wheel Drive SUV popularity -Reply

The debate over the price of gasoline must be made in the context of total cost 
accounting or total environmental costs.  Include in this cost all aspects; from 
the crude to the pump, plus the maintainence and construction of the roads.  
If I use my car, make me pay for the pollution I cause.  But, my federal taxes 
must be reduced to compensate.  Driving a car is a luxury.  Non-drivers should 
not have to pay for my luxury.  Thank you for the opportunity to participate in 
the debate.
