Dick Morris is 100% correct when he says the American people are being Fleeced by the government. Politicians call for gas conservation, and guess what, the American population does just that. Now because gas demand has decreased and Congress feels it is not making enough in tax revenue, politicians are quietly talking about raising the federal gas tax by another 10 cents a gallon. What about the "working class"? People are already trying to conserve gas because of sky rocketing prices. Not everyone can afford to live downtown, and not everyone works in a place that is accessible by public transportation. Raising the gas tax only punishes people trying to make ends meat. Blame whomever you want for this current energy crisis, but the fact is that normal everyday people are suffering, and punishing individuals for conserving is just plain stupid.
