    CAFE rules just encourages us to drive more....
    People will be saying, "look at how much we are saving" without realizing that they are "spending" gasoline by the gallon while saving it by the pint.
    Remember the first oil embargo? People traded in paid for cars that got 15 mpg to finance economy gars that got 25 mpg. The smart move was to just drive the old car less.

    Which one, the one to scrap the first energy plan the country ever had, or the one, when he learned of the study connecting air pollution to increased cases of skin cancer, said that people would just have to wear broad brimmed hats and sun screen because industry couldn't stand to spend more than one-half of one percent of their profits on pollution control?

    I disagree. The same argument could be made for drilling in ANWR, but increasing the CAFE standards avoids plundering our strategic resereve for the future and one the most pristine wilderness areas left in the world. The ascending gas prices due to peak oil will discourage excess travel.

    which part of this pristine wilderness is being plundered? I will have to find it again, but seems I read that the scenic parts aren't being considered for drilling. Most land based oil wells are on flat plains.
