During the primaries and now the full on presidential campaigning

there is lots of talk about cheapening the exploding cost of gas, and a quick measure being tauted is to suspend the gas tax.

But I think ole Mike Bloomberg is right:

"Reducing taxes on energy consumption is the wrong way to go. We should be raising taxes on energy consumption dramatically because it's the only way you're going to force people to use less."

And everyone needs to be using less energy. Bloomberg is also an advocate for nuclear power, which, again, he’s right.
