The best way to stop using so much gas is to deport 11 million illegal immigrants!   That would be 11 million less people using our gas. 
Next, bring our troops home from Iraq to guard the border.  When they catch an illegal immigrant crossing it, they can hand him a canteen, a rifle and some ammo and ship him to Iraq   If he wants to come to America then he must serve a tour in the military.  Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on it.  After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country.  He will also be registered to be taxed. 
This option will lower the cost of gasoline, deter illegal immigration and provide solutions for both  the troops in Iraq and the aliens trying to make a better life for themselves.  If they refuse to serve, ship them to Iraq anyway, without the canteen, rifle or ammo. 

Problem solved..... 

Note: E-RFDs are messages that circulate around the internet.  Some are factual and some are mythical.  We make no distinction between the types, here, but rather offer them pretty much as they come in -- as examples of comment and rumor from a global mind.
