Believe It Or Not, I Don't Agree With This

The intersection of public policy (including but far from limited to low gas taxes) and private choices has created a country where for most people total gas costs are nontrivial and not avoidable. That it costs less/gallon than in other countries with more substitutes (public transit included) and more compact development does mean Americans should suck it up. In this area we mostly don't have the public policies I would prefer related to this issue, but it isn't (only) the fault of voters.
