Same entry point, Bits makes his point and  I make mine.  Congressmen will never take action to lower the price of gasoline as long as the taxpayer is paying for their gasoline.   The Breck Girl is right.   There are two Americas.   We have the America which works, Bill Vlasic, New York Times

DETROIT — Soaring gas prices have turned the steady migration by Americans to smaller cars into a stampede.

In what industry analysts are calling a first, about one in five vehicles sold in the United States was a compact or subcompact car during April, based on monthly sales data released Thursday. Almost a decade ago, when sport utility vehicles were at their peak of popularity, only one in every eight vehicles sold was a small car.

And then we have the America which governs, WCBS-TV:

:NEW YORK (CBS) ? You may not realize it, but members of the House of Representatives can lease a car and have it paid for by you — the taxpayer. And it’s not just the car, but gas, registration, insurance … the works.

And as CBS 2 HD found out, there’s no limit on how much they can spend.

Congressman Charles Rangel was recently seen getting out of his Cadillac DeVille, which he leases for $774 per month.

I  too could drive a Cadillac, if you,  the taxpayer, were paying for it.    As long as Charlie, and his ilk,  is having you pay for his gas, he simply will not care how much is costs you.  Demand better.
