Apparently there are a lot of people surprised by it... why else would
public figures and their followers petition congress for a solution when
prices get ``too high'' or at ``critical levels''? As if price controls
is something that congress should be involved in.

I hope you do keep driving it. If you start curbing your demand for
gasoline, then we may never arrive at an alternative energy source. :-)
Maybe once the prices get high enough, someoe will seriously consider
developing an alternative since the profits will certainly be worth it

So, if the pain comes more slowly its better? It would seem to me that
the end results of the policies implemented by the ``ruling class''
don't differ much. Sure, they may have superficial differences when they
are sold to the public --- assuming the public even has any say in the
matter --- that lead many to believe that there is a major partisan
division, but is there really that much difference in the end?
