    If you think we are not headed down that road at a somewhat slower pace, you are nuts. All the attention being recently driven towards global warming, hype or not, will negatively affect our ownership of large fuel-hungry vehicles.

    That sucks..big time..

    It would not shock me to see that happen here.. what better way to get us all into motorized shoeboxes for our transportation.. the greenies here just idolize europe..

    True story.. I'm at a meeting held by clevelands municipal planning organization, and the topic of diuscussion is " cleveland's dirty air and what to do about it"..

    one city bigwig says - " the real problem is that people are allowed to live in medina, and commute to cleveland to work.. that shouldn't be allowed".. (we're talking a 30 mile or so commute, btw).. another says.." I wish gas gas was FIVE dollars a gallon.. wouldn't bother me a bit.. but it better be mostly taxes, not for the damn oil companies.. that'll get the SUV's off the road"..

    Another shows a plan for a collectivist beehive where everyone can live and work without commuting.. and if you MUST go anywhere, well those little hybrids work wonders..

    I made some enemies myself when I asked how any of this squares with the concept of individual freedom.. boy, the looks I got..

    Trust me, the noose is getting tighter folks..periodically you'll hear noise being made about family average fuel economy..under this little scheme, you'll be taxed based on the average fuel economy of every vehicle you own.. the more you own, the more you pay..

    what it amounts to is a way to keep the tax revenues up in case we ever get to the point of using less fuel as a society.

    make no mistake.. it can happen here..
