    New Edict - New cars must get 100 gazillion million miles per gallon by August.

    There, problem solved.

    Yea, and on top of that, if we aren't averaging this / moving towards alternative energy vehicles then we have far more to worry about than this legislation. Like our inevitable increased dependency on Iran (as they will have better oil and natural gas production capabilities by then), the increased cost of fuel, etc.

    This should have been done in incremental phases over a long period of time a while ago, not for the environment, but for our security and economy. Kind of ridiculous that the past four presidents lacked the foresight to see the benefits of increasing fuel efficiency standards for vehicles.

    I wonder how much fuel was consumed during his multi million dollar date with Michelle to NY which required 3 planes?
