Higher gas prices, CNN has been saying all year how higher gas prices help the middle class.

You may be onto something, it's flimsy and circumstantial at best as gas prices are much lower now than last year.

I think with the new 55 MPG standards coming soon will create more revenue for the government .

Also Gas will drop more as the world enters another recession.

and don't forget USA will be a net exporter of energy come 2016 in oil and gas.

I forgot it just as soon as it was touted. I bet you bathe in propaganda don't you? You lather it up thick and foamy and smear it on your nether regions, then rinse with renewable cool aid.

I expect gas to be $6+ a gallon with 55mpg, you should too.

But while we are in recession until about 2015 gas will remain lower.

The fed as we know is devaluing the dollar.

If we remain in this current cycle like Japan then you will see more of the same for 20yrs+

If interst rates go up and gas goes up, the economy will be doing well.

That doesn't make any sense. Huge supplies of oil are being freed up with fracking. The only constraint on gas prices will be refining.

It is given that we need to raise the tax revenue somehow. This article fails to mention how gasoline tax or consumption tax would impact difference class of people. If you are earning only $10K a year and pay $100 a month for gasoline, the impact is 12% of whatever tax increase. And if you are earning $1M a year and paying $100 a month, the impact is less than 0.12% of whatever tax increase. If I were earning $1M, I would definitely say increase the consumption tax. Cause it has less impact on me.

If you read the article without much thought into it, you fall into the trap.
