    What comes next? Federally supplied vehicles for the poor? Gasoline Stamps for the needy?
    Prices for older less fuel efficient vehicles will also crater, making initial cost to buy much lower. This will also spur a move to go to mileage monitoring, so that electric powered vehicles will not escape paying for road use.

    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    There is a silver lining in higher oil prices.. It's alternative energy. We can make fuel out of poop for crying out loud.
