Fueling change

June 07, 2008

Re "Drivers' pain has suddenly become agony," June 3

Despite the recent climb in gasoline prices, we are still enjoying affordable petrol relative to other industrial- ized nations. So rather than "only thinking of politics in terms of who will get me lower gas prices," we should seek out candidates who understand that we must go exactly the other way and pursue a course that will guarantee a high price of gasoline.

We need to ensure that these sea changes (taking mass transit, working from home and demanding fuel-efficient vehicles) become commonplace rather than transitory.
