Getting on the soapbox... (And somewhat off topic for this thread).State taxes suck on fuel prices. But even if states eliminated the tax, gas stations wouldn't lower their prices to compensate. Always SOME reason why we're playing highly inflated fuel costs.
The day green energy adequately replaces ICE vehicles to the tune of distance and charging times, will be a momentous occasion for all.
That day will come when we finally stop giving people the expectation of cheap gas. You will not get an argument from me if the gas prices continue to go up commensurate to what others are paying overseas. The day of cheap gas and 'Murica attitudes on what's acceptable for gas mileage needs to change. The same folks that decry high taxes and government regulation on CAFE standards are the same ones that cry about their financial affairs when gas prices "unexpectedly" go up again putting their wallets in a pinch. It needs to stop.
And yes, this is coming from the mouth of a car enthusiast who loves power.
OK, off the soapbox.
