Gas Prices

How High Will Gas Prices Go? Heritage lays out a state by state analysis.

You might be interested in the bipartisan amendment to the bill which would bring the mpg required of light trucks from 50+ to about 36, and would include different requirements for cars vs. light trucks.

The amendment is called Pryor-Bond-Levin-Voinovich. For the record, I work for the Auto Alliance in DC and we've got plenty more info about it on our site, DriveCongress.com. Thanks!

NeoConservationist,

I like your screenname. Very clever.

I'm all for higher gas milage vehicles, but I'd much rather have it be market- and technology- driven than legislated. Even the lower average of 36 mpg for light trucks seems kind of ridiculous to jam down the throats of auto makers.
