Got Fuel to Burn, Got Roads to Drive

Apparently, Senator McCain thinks its a good idea to INCREASE fuel consumption and encourage driving this summer. Story here.

To help people weather the downturn immediately, McCain urged Congress to institute a "gas-tax holiday" by suspending the 18.4 cent federal gas tax and 24.4 cent diesel tax from Memorial Day to Labor Day. He also renewed his call for the United States to stop adding to the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and thus lessen to some extent the worldwide demand for oil.

Oh what the hell, it's only the fate of the Earth in the balance. These people will say anything to get elected.
