Gas Tax Holiday, A Dumb Idea

We do not need a gas tax holiday. When a patient is hemorrhaging from a gaping wound, a band aid is nothing more than a waste of time fixing the issue. What we need is a comprehensive energy plan that will eventually make us energy independent. This needs to include temporary steps such as drilling in ANWR and raising fuel mileage standards. Both side need to give on this issue because it is too important.

And no, Senator McCain, ANWR is not the Grand Canyon but even so, if there was significant oil in the Grand Canyon, we should drill there also, it is that important.

I agree. Gasoline and oil are no longer commodities in our modern world. They are necessities like electricity and groceries and good infrastructure.
